Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)—April 24, 2013. Last June a fire completely destroyed the Central Park Wetlands Observation Deck in Park Forest. A grassroots fundraising effort was undertaken in which more than $5,000 was collected to replace the deck. These efforts were led by the Park Forest Rotary Club, the Park Forest Recreation and Parks Advisory Board and the Park Forest Environment Commission. Village crews have been working diligently on rebuilding the observation deck to make it better than ever.
On Saturday morning, April 27 at 9 a.m., a brief rededication ceremony will take place at the site of the Centrals Park Wetlands Observation Deck. Residents are encouraged to attend and see the spirit of Park Forest in action.
