Mark Your Calendar – Village Central Park Plan Discussion

July/August 2016

Submitted by the RPC


On July 19th, the Riverwoods Board of Trustees will discuss a landscaping and centralized park plan for the new Village Hall and surrounding area.

Key elements of the plan include:

  • A natural recreation area to encourage children to get outdoors and interact with the woodlands.
  • A playground area for smaller children
  • Pathways, picnic areas, a Council Ring re pit, areas for public gatherings such as Halloween, Easter Egg hunt, plant sale, scouting activities, and other exciting ideas such as a camping area.
  • Educational areas explaining the bene ts and implementation of ecological practices such as rain gardens, canopy clearing, living with wetlands, and removal of invasive plants.
  • Exploration of corporate and resident fundraising and volunteer opportunities.

Please come to the July 19th meeting to learn more of the plan details. The Board meeting will be held at 7:30pm at Wolters Kluwer on Lake Cook Road. Signs will direct you to the building once you turn into the Wolters Kluwer driveway.
