About the Richton Park Community Center
The Richton Park Community Center is a 14,000 square foot building built of ACC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete). The new Center has innovative and green design features so that we can be proud of our stewardship of the environment and we will benefit from the operational cost savings.
The village saved for over 20 years to have the resources needed for this $3.5 million project. Funds were raised by the Village and the Parks and Recreation Commission, and the funds were available from the Crossings TIF (Tax Increment Financing) District which expired in 2012.
The Center opened its doors in January 2011 for recreational programming, special events, and facility rentals. The Center houses the Village President, Community Relations Staff, and the Recreational Staff.
