Thorndale Recreation Center Building Renovations and Springhill Park Renovation to begin July 7.

Beginning on Monday, July 7, our long-awaited building renovations and park renovation will begin.  Over the next 2-3 months, Thorndale Recreation Center and Springhill Park will be going through major overhauls as part of the Master Plan Facility Upgrades.  Please be patient with us during this time as these areas will become construction zones.  At some point during our Thorndale Recreation Center renovation, the front entrance will be temporarily moved to the North side of the building through the pre-school room.  We will have signage and information about this when this happens.  We would like to thank all of the Medinah Park District residents for your ongoing support of these projects and of the District's mission.  We think you'll be quite happy with the finished product come September!
