Clarkson Park Renovation
Read the October 2020 Update to learn about the Clarkson Park Renovation.
Clarkson Park construction bids were awarded on August 24, 2020 to Hacienda Landscaping and Kaminski Architects. The project started with demolition of the playground and picnic shelter in September and is expected to be completed in April, 2021. Construction fencing is up around the playground, picnic shelter and bathrooms. These areas will be inaccessible during the project.
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.
