New Lacrosse Nets

Glencoe resident Chris Sullivan loves playing lacrosse, but noticed Glencoe lacked a proper lacrosse practice ‭field. The game, considered one of the fastest growing youth sports, has grown ‭in popularity on the North Shore in recent ‭years.

‭Noticing the trend, Chris asked the Park ‭District if it was possible to install a set of goals in one of District’s unused park parcels. To his surprise, the Park District was able to ‭respond quickly and install the nets within ‭a month of his request. ‭

The new nets are now available for use at Park 3N, which is ‭located along Old Green Bay Road between Dennis Lane and Lincoln Drive. 

‭The Park District is always open to resident suggestions for additional amenities. Other resident requests, like improving puddling ‭on the Shelton Park pathway and increasing parking at the Takiff Center, are planned for ‭the 2018-19 fiscal year. Residents are always welcome to share their ‭thoughts on special projects at Glencoe Park ‭District Board of Commissioner meetings. ‭The board meets on the third Tuesday of ‭each month at 7 p.m. at the Takiff Center.
