Twin Lakes


The area just east of the Twin Lakes deck and near the boat house is being renovated.  This area was identified as having some safety issues  and is being renovated to open up, beautify and secure extra patio space.  The walkway was buckling and was not a safe surface because of tree roots and therefore needed to be replaced.  The large elm tree was diseased and needed removal as well as some of the pine trees. 

In the concept design, the Park District will be replacing the walkway to the boat dock as well as including an open concrete area with benches.  There will be a shade tree added along with other decorative plantings to hide a protruding manhole.  Finally, the old split rail fence will be replaced and outcrop stone added for a more secure fishing area. The entire project should take approximately 3 weeks to complete.
