Euclid Square Park Renovation

Euclid Square Park Master-Plan

Euclid Square Park Renovation

Euclid Square Park is a 2.8 acre park located in the south end of Oak Park one block north of Roosevelt Road and one block east of Oak Park Avenue. As part of a major renovation of this park, scheduled to begin in early April 2017, the Park District will construct a new, fully ADA-accessible playground featuring permeable rubber surfacing, totally renovate the existing tennis courts, including re-purposing one court for the popular sport of pickle ball, and create a small sled hill for toddlers. Additionally, improvements will be made to the looped pathway system, a small interpretive rain garden will be created and additional landscaping will be planted throughout the park including native and ornamental trees and shrubs. Oak Park residents can look forward to the completion of this park renovation project in August 2017.

A site plan for Euclid Square Park was developed in 2008-09 through an extensive public input process. Phase I improvements, completed in spring 2011, included removal of existing site furnishings including backstops, benches and fencing; site grading and drainage improvements in the outfield/multi-purpose field; construction and installation of ball field improvements, concrete pathways, new site furnishings and landscaping.  

In January 2015, Governor Quinn awarded a $400,000 OSLAD (Open Space Land Acquisition and Development) Grant for Phase II improvements to Euclid Square Park. These funds will cover the partial cost of the park renvovation. The remainder of the project will be funded through the Park District's Capital Improvement Plan.
