Old Elm Park

 

Built in 2005, this small, mini park serves approximately 126 people in the surrounding area. Featuring a modular structure, spinners, spring rockers, swings, and a sand play area, the playground offers play opportunities for all ages between two and twelve. The playground has engineered wood fiber surfacing and a concrete curb. Following the Master Plan, the Board of Commissioners approved renovating the playground in 2018. The public is invited to share input by attending the Board of Commissioner's Special Projects & Facilities meetings or sending feedback to specialprojects@glencoeparkdistrict.com.
