Be Part of the Lakefront Park Design Process

Seeking Community Feedback

Erin Maassen 0 103

The Glencoe Park District is making plans to renovate the tennis courts at Lakefront Park and would like your feedback! We are seeking community feedback on what should be included in the concept plan.  

 The Park District is currently considering three options: maintaining the historical layout (new surfacing-no changes to the number of courts), replacing the existing courts with pickleball courts, or a combination of tennis and pickleball courts. We will also review court surfaces and design elements. You are invited to share your opinions on these amenities at one of two community meetings on Monday, December 6. The meetings will be held on Zoom, with opportunities to share thoughts about the Park District’s racquet court needs at 10:00 AM and 6:30 PM. If you are interested in attending one of the meetings, please email [email protected] for the meeting link. 

 The information gathered at these community meeting will be used to draft a concept plan for Lakefront Park and shared at a future Board meeting, tentatively scheduled for early 2022. Specific details will be available at soon.

Following a new mandate from the Cook County Department of Public Health, face coverings will be required in all Glencoe Park District indoor public facilities effective immediately. This includes Glencoe Fitness, group fitness classes, adult programs, and all youth programs. The Cook County Order can be read in full here.

Youth Program Changes

Together with District 35, we’ve made the difficult decision to delay the start of certain after-school programming by one week. Instead of starting the week of August 30, certain after-school programming will now start on September 8. The new start date is designed to give everyone—teachers, students, and park district staff—time to adjust to new school COVID-19 protocols. 

Masks Recommended

Masks No Longer Required Outdoors

We strongly recommend masks are worn indoors.

Unvaccinated individuals, including children 11 and younger, must wear masks while indoors. All others must wear masks when around children under age 12.
