Welcome to the Medinah Park District
NORDIC PARK PLAYGROUND RE-DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
The Medinah Park District's Nordic Park (at the intersection of Fairway and Nordic located in the District's unincorporated area of Itasca) will be undergoing a facelift this fall. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid October and will include the replacement of playground equipment, additions of a park shelter, picnic tables, a bike rack, a new swing set, concrete paving & drainage work and landscaping. Completion of work, based upon ongoing national supply chain scenarios, may take us into early spring, 2022. The playground portion of the park will be shut down and not available for use during this construction period. We look forward to bringing the community a new, updated play area over the next few months. Questions from the community can be answered by contacting the Park District at 630-893-2560.
