Village of Villa Park awarded $400,000 OSLAD Grant

The Village will allocate the grant funds to redevelop Lufkin Park. The redevelopments will include a nature walking trail, playground nature theme, floating fishing pier, bandshell performance area, water spray area (nature themed), ninja challenge style playground, as well as bathroom facilities with a picnic shelter overhang.

Discussions on the park renovation began in March 2020, as staff updated the Parks and Recreation Commission on the timeline to submit the application for a grant.

The Village of Villa Park and the Parks and Recreation Department aims to provide more recreational opportunities, both passive and active, to the residents of Villa Park. Currently, the residential area directly east and north of Lufkin Park is void of any parkland or recreation amenities.
