Open House Set for Glendell Acres Park Renovation

Glendell Acres Park

A major park renovation project is beginning at Edgerton’s Glendell Acres Park Street.  The City of Edgerton has contracted with local landscape architect SWT Design to design the renovation for Glendell Acres Park near 3rd and Edgewood. Neighbors may notice an increased amount of pedestrian traffic in the park and surveyors on site.

Updating this neighborhood park will increase attractiveness, lower safety hazards, and provide more enjoyable recreational activities for the community.  The project could include new playground equipment, additions to the sidewalk system, repurposed greenspaces, and updates to the landscaping.

The City and SWT plan to host a public input session at Glendell Acres Park on July 24 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in conjunction with the Edgerton Summer Movie Night event.  Please make plans to attend and lend your voice to this exciting neighborhood improvement project. In addition to the project open house, there will be an inflatable obstacle course for the kids, free Dip ‘n Dots ice cream for the first 100 people, Olympic-themed games, and at dusk we will be showing the film Cool Runnings on the big screen.

A survey is available online throughout the month of July. Please click here for a link to the survey.
