Park District Achieves Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the Medinah Park District for its comprehensive annual financial report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.  The report has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.  The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and it management.  This award follows up on the same award rendered to the Park District for its fiscal year ending December 31, 2018.

Nordic Park Playground enhancement project

Medinah Park District's Nordic Park playground enhancement project will begin construction in the mid - fall of 2021.  The new playground and surrounding area includes a new 5-12 year old playground piece, updated swings, 2 independent play pieces as well as other park amenities that include a pavilion, permanent picnic tables, park benches, landscaping and concrete patio and new sidewalk entrance.  Current supply chain challenges may result in some work not being completed until early spring, 2022.  During construction, the playground area will be fenced off resulting in the public not being able to use this portion of the park site.  We thank you in advance for your patience during this construction project and look forward to bringing the community an updated Nordic Park in the near future.
