Skate Park Closed

Due to the age and condition of the skate park equipment, the Glencoe Park District’s risk management and insurance agency recommended closing the Skate Park immediately. The skate park, located behind the Takiff Center, will be demolished this week. The Skate Park was built in 2002 and is past its useful life. In recent years, the deterioration of equipment has forced the Park District to remove various ramps and skate park features.
