New park in the works off Haligus Road in Lakewood

Crystal Lake Park District seeks public input about the future of the 10-acre site

The Crystal Lake Park District is in the early planning stages for a new community park on Haligus Road in Lakewood and is seeking input from the public.

A brainstorming session is planned for 7 p.m. Oct. 27 at Grand Oaks Recreation Center, 1401 W. Route 176, just east of the intersection with Briarwood Road, according to a news release. All Crystal Lake Park District residents are welcome to attend.

The park site is 10 acres in size and located just south of the village of Lakewood’s public works facility on Haligus Road.

Hitchcock Design Group has been hired to design a master plan for the park and will be leading the public input session. More opportunities also will be available in the future to provide input as the planning phase proceeds over the next six months.
