Homer Glen chooses HR Green to Develop Park
The Homer Glen Village Board approved hiring HR Green for engineering services to develop a park in the Goodings Grove subdivision.
Developer Gallagher and Henry donated the land for the park to the village, and it will include a playground, a toddler playground, basketball court, picnic shelter and hiking and walking paths.
A large free-play area is planned for the north side of the park. A memorial grove area for residents to plant pre-selected trees to honor deceased loved ones also is planned.
The village received a grant to help pay for the park development. The total project is expected to cost $341,000. The grant requires that the new park is completed by Dec. 31, 2015.
