The park has certainly taken shape. On a site visit on October 20, the parking lot was completed and stripped. The pathway around the site is in place with a few connections needing to be formed and concrete poured. There is still massive grading occurring toward the eastern side of the park where the retaining wall meets the soccer field. We have been told it should be completed in the next week or so. You will see the retaining walls start to be formed along with the installation of the playground in the coming weeks. Outside of the eastern portion of the site, much of the site is rough graded and awaiting additional topsoil before seeding can occur. We also recently added 11 new mature trees on the site to replace removed trees during the renovations. There are additional trees in the plan that will be planted in the coming weeks.

The concrete curb installation is almost completed. This week they have been working on placing drainage structures throughout the west side of the property with some to be laid heading east over the next week or so. Pouring of asphalt in the parking lot and courts is scheduled in about a week. While asphalt is being installed, the contractor plans to continue to grade and install infrastructure on the east side of the property and prepare the site for the rough grade. The playground structure is expected to arrive in mid-October.

As many of you are seeing, construction is taking off at the park. The playground, baseball field, parking lot and some trees have been removed from around the property. In the following weeks, expect to see concrete placed around the facility and mass grading that will form the park’s overall look. Drain tile and other forms to move water around the property will also be installed. The project is scheduled to be completed by November 27, 2020. Please contact the Park District at 708-342-4200 or email@example.com if you have any questions. Watch this page for additional updates as work progresses.

The Tinley Park-Park District has sustained an increased number of vandalism incidents this summer, in particular at Vogt Woods Park located at 6527 W. 171st Street. Multiple areas within the park have been tagged with vulgar, inappropriate graffiti and buildings, playground equipment, tables and benches have been damaged or broken. This vandalism has occurred almost daily over the course of the past few weeks. We have been working with the Tinley Park Police Department, but we need your help, too.
The District takes great pride in providing outdoor amenities for residents and visitors, and our staff works hard to maintain the premises. We ask and encourage residents that if they see something unusual happening in the parks system, to please notify the Tinley Park-Park District at 708-342-4200 or the Tinley Park Police Department by calling non-emergency dispatch at 708-532-9111.
Thank you for helping us keep the community’s parks safe, clean and enjoyable for everyone!
