Master Plans

The Oswegoland Park District worked with Hitchcock Design Group to create Master Plans for select parks and trails within the District. It is important for Park Districts to have these plans prepared to take advantage of funding opportunities when they become available such as grants or donations. The following parks were found to have enhancement opportunities that would benefit residents throughout the District. Click on the following parks to view their Master Plans: Bluegrass Park East, Hudson Crossing Park, Fox River Trail, Community Park at Grande Park, and Violet Patch Park.

The Oswegoland Park District plans to expand access and amenities to the lake at Farmington Lakes Park. On the south side of the lake, a proposed boardwalk system would connect to a floating dock and kayak/canoe launch. To give access to the lake on the east and north side, the plans call for stone outcropping and bench areas off of the existing bike path. A wood fishing pier and overlook is proposed to allow access to the lake from the west side. New aquatic plants, shoreline plants, and outcroppings in certain locations would help with existing erosion and algae issues. Proposed amenities for the open space area off of Farmington Lakes Dr. include a new parking lot, shelter, game tables, baggo game stations, bike repair station, and pedestrian access over the Waubonsie Creek. If feasible, the existing bike path would be extended around the lake on the east side to meet up with the new boardwalk. View the Farmington Lakes Park Master Plan.
