New parcel added to McCollum Park

Tue October 24, 2017

In February of 2017, the Downers Grove Park District purchased an approximately 1/2-acre parcel located at 6821 S. Main Street.

This parcel is located adjacent to McCollum Park along the western edge, and will become part of the existing park. The parcel currently contains a single-family residence with attached garage.

Within the next 10 days, the Park District’s demolition contractor will be demolishing and removing all structures currently located on this parcel. Once the structures have been removed, the contractor will restore the disturbed areas with turf grass. To date, the Park District has not completed any improvement plans for this new parcel. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Paul Fyle at 630-960-5451 or email at
