Athletic Field Updates
(Updated 4/10/14)

Athletic fields are currently closed. The tentative date to open fields is Saturday, April 19th. When the weather and conditions allow, efforts to prepare the fields for use will include field layouts, in-field conditioning, turf maintenance, line striping, goal placement, and irrigation repairs. Patience and cooperation is appreciated as the Village works to ready the fields. While anxious and well meaning, please do not use the fields prior to them being officially opened. .

Skate Park Update
The cold weather has hampered crews from performing spring maintenance to the skate park. Once seasonal maintenance is performed , the skate park will be opened for the season. It is anticipated that the park will be open in early May. Please check back for updates.

KLM Dog Area Temporarily Modified
Effective April 3, 2014
Due to the wet conditions the area that dogs are permitted at Katherine Legge Memorial Park has been modified. The goal of the modification is to protect the condition of the turf and allow for turf to be established.
  Dogs will be permitted south of the creek but must remain north of the North Picnic Shelter during permitted dog hours. This area is considered Concert Hill.
  Dogs are not permitted near the platform tennis courts or the Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge.
  When turf conditions improve, dogs will be permitted to use the area north of the creek.
  Hinsdale Police will enforce the temporary dog area.
Your patience and cooperation is appreciated. The Village is working to manage the park for future use. Please check the website and the park for updates, www.villageofhisndale.org/pr

Individuals who violate the rules are subject to fines issued by the Hinsdale Police Department.
