Darien Community Park Update

Construction is ongoing at Darien Community Park! The Darien Park District was awarded a $400,000 OSLAD Grant in 2022 to assist with the costs of renovating and upgrading the amenities at Darien Community Park.

The project includes two newly renovated tennis courts, four new pickleball courts, one new synthetic turf volleyball court, 2 renovated half basketball courts, baggo stations, pathways, shade structures, fitness stations and a renovated parking lot with permeable pavers and bioswale plantings.

Parking is currently limited at the park, so please plan accordingly! Please make sure to obey all parking signs when parking on any local streets, and be respectful of all neighbors.

We hope that the project will be complete and ready for use by our residents by Fall, so please stay tuned to our website for GRAND OPENING details!

802 Plainfield Road/Garden View Park

The District is excited to announce that they were awarded a $600,000 OSLAD Grant in 2023 from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to assist with developing the former maintenance facility site, at 802 Plainfield Road.

The proposed project will focus on environmental responsibility by including community gardens, along with a large pollinator garden. It will also include a splash pad, as well as a playground, shelter, perennial maze and many shady picnic areas.

Detailed construction plans are being developed and bid, and the project is expected to begin construction in the Spring/Summer 2024.
