The Kennedy Park Playground will re-open to the public on Saturday, June 9.
Kennedy Park playground is scheduled for replacement in Spring 2018. The project has been in a holding pattern over the past several years due to potential interest in the property from other local Highland Park governments. The park was considered by the City of Highland Park for a potential new fire station site and was an option for the NSSD 112 Reconfiguration discussion. NSSD 112 owns the north portion of the park.
Since that time, both the City and NSSD ruled out Kennedy for future building, clearing the way for the Park District to move forward with its intended plan and investment for replacing the playground.
