Village Board Approves River Oaks Park Project
SHOREWOOD, IL – Our Village Board is committed to investing in and updating our aging parks!  The Village Board approved a contract with George’s Landscaping to update our River Oaks Park in the River Oaks Estates Subdivision at the intersection of Ranchwood and Colonade.  Our budget includes over $200k to update the 25-year-old park.

Constructed in 1999, River Oaks Park is equipped with original equipment that is showing its age.  The park needs an update to meet today’s standards.  The scope of work includes new playground equipment, acrylic surface for the ½ basketball court, and educational landscaping.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, June 3rd, 2024, depending on the weather, with an anticipated completion date of November 2024.

For everyone’s safety, the park area will be closed to the public until construction is completed.

Please remember, public safety is our primary concern.  We ask that you drive slowly and cautiously near the Construction Zones.  We realize that these projects may present brief inconveniences.  Your patience during the construction is greatly appreciated. 

Questions or concerns regarding this work should be directed to the Public Works Department at (815) 553-2321.
