Crete Park District Special Meeting

Willard Wood Park Center Expansion & Crete Park Improvement Meeting

Friday, December 6, 2019, 6-7 PM and

Saturday, December 7, 2019, 10-NOON

Crete Park District will be holding  special meetings on December 6 & 7, 2019 to discuss the proposed addition and renovation of the Willard Wood Park Center and Crete Park with their residents.  The meeting will be held at Crete Park on Main, 1374 Main Street in Crete.


The Willard Wood Park Center, 515 First Street in Crete was built in 1976 by Volunteers.  After 43 years of expanding and community growth, the Crete Park District can no longer serve its citizens well with only this small amount of space. Through Long Range and Vision Planning meetings, the District would like to see the addition provide an outdoor education space and yoga patio, an additional classroom, a meeting/conference/art room, a recreation planning area, a locked office area for personnel and other sensitive material, improved ADA Bathrooms and a study room for teens who need somewhere to go after school. 


Crete Park District is looking for input from Residents regarding the proposed renovation.  The District plans to apply for Park and Recreation Construction Grant Program in 2020 to fund the project. For more information, please call (708)672-6969.

We hope you will find several programs to make your family happy and healthy and join us soon!
