PROJECT OVERVIEW:

INTRODUCTION:

The Wilmette Park District is replacing the play equipment at Maple Park (398 Maple Avenue in Wilmette). The existing playground is made from wood, and due to its age and exposure to the elements, much of the play equipment needs significant repair or replacement. It is our goal to spend the next few months gathering public feedback on the park and use of the playground, organizing plans and solutions for public needs, and ultimately replacing the play equipment at Maple Park this fall.
