CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Park District will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Administrative Office, 1 E. Crystal Lake Ave.

The purpose of the meeting is to get feedback from park users on a variety of proposed playground layouts and equipment types.

A master redevelopment plan for the 20-year-old Woodscreek Park was approved by the Park District Board in 2011, and a grant from the Illinois Department of Resources was awarded to partially fund the project.

In addition to a new playground, the redevelopment project will include a splash pad, a second tennis court, a second fishing pier, bocce courts, baggo courts and a new parking lot.

Construction is expected to begin in May 2014.

For information, contact Ann Viger, director of planning and development, at 815-459-0680, ext. 205, or
