Park District hosts Open Houses for Proposed Improvements

Join the Bloomingdale Park District for a series of open houses at the Johnston Recreation Center in advance of a November 8 referendum seeking $9.9 million in bonds to address improvements and repairs to three park district facilities.


Open house attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the projects, ask questions and meet Park District board members and staff. Presentations begin promptly at start time and are followed by questions and answers.

The three projects identified in the referendum to receive repair and improvements are the Springfield Park ballfields and wetlands shorelines, Johnston Recreation Center and The Oasis Water Park.
