Park District awarded $224,000 matching grant!

The Bloomingdale Park District was recently informed by Governor Pat Quinn's Office that it has been awarded a $224,000 matching Open Space Land and Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) grant to renovate Circle Park.


"On behalf of our residents, Board of Commissioners and staff of the Bloomingdale Park District, we are absolutely thrilled to receive this grant," said Bloomingdale Park District Executive Director Carrie Fullerton. "Circle Park will be one of the best, most fun places to recreate in 2016!"


Circle Park is the District's third-most utilized park. The $448,000 renovation is to include:

• new nature playground

• picnic shelter

• a small skate spot

• adult outdoor fitness equipment

• rain gardens and improvements to the stormwater system

• renovated roller hockey rink for multi-season use

• interpretive nature trail with educational signage


All renovations and additions are derived from the Park District's Strategic Plan, ADA Transition Plan and most recent Needs Assessment. Learn more about the grant.
