parking lot IMPROVEMENTS

The Downers Grove Park District is excited to provide 4500 Fitness members and Recreation Center visitors with much-needed improvements to the parking lot:

  • Resurfacing of the entire parking lot
  • Addition of 28 new parking spaces
  • Addition of a circle drop-off lane near the front entrance


Construction will continue through the month of August. Half of the lot will remain open for parking for a duration of the construction with the exception of a short closure of the entire facility either the last week of August or first week of September (weather dependent) to complete the project. Dates for the facility closure will be announced soon. Learn more
