Much needed upgrades to Sunset Park are underway!

As part of approximatley $150,000 in upgrades, $43,001.00 was granted to the city by a grant from GameTime, through a program developed in partnership with Illinois Parks and Recreation Association.

All of the equipment closest to the road, near the bathroom, will be replaced. The playground apparatus down the hill is not a part of this project. The new equipment was chosen with ages 5 to 12 in mind. The new swings will be similar to the ones just put in Washington Park. There will be a rock climber, a tube kids go through to go down a slide, and there is a few climbers on there.
