Clarkson Park Renovation
The Northfield Park District was notified in February, 2019 that we have been awarded an OSLAD (Open Space Land Acquisition and Development Grant) from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources in the amount of $400,000 for the Clarkson Park Master Plan redevelopment. The redevelopment of Clarkson Park was the number one priority established by the Park Board of Commissioners.
Planning is ongoing with the goal of starting construction in 2020. You can see the current Clarkson Park renovation conceptual drawing below.
The Park District encourages its residents to be active in the final planning stages of the renovation as we move through final design development and Village approval.
