It is happening!

On July 31, 2018, the Board of Park Commissioners approved the bids to complete work to demolish and construct a new beach house and parking lot at Gillson Park. The schematic designs of the project can be found by clicking here.

Demolition begins!

The fencing is up! Now it is time to take down the beach house and begin the construction of a new beach house. If you want to see the work as it takes place, we have mounted a camera on the Lakeview Center so you can watch online! Simply click here to view the camera. Enjoy, and we look forward to giving the Wilmette community a new beach house in 2019!
