In August, the Downers Grove Park District will begin a major park improvement project to update and expand recreation amenities at McCollum Park. Located at 6801 S. Main St. in Downers Grove, McCollum Park currently features ball fields, soccer fields, sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, a playground, a walking path and Miner Mike’s Adventure Golf. Anticipated to be completed by the summer of 2023, the upcoming improvements will include infrastructure renovations and the development of new, much-desired recreation opportunities for visitors of all ages.
To kick off the construction of the McCollum Park Improvement Project, the Downers Grove Park District will host a public groundbreaking ceremony at 5pm on Thursday, Aug. 4, at McCollum Park.
This project was postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19 budget constraints.
Construction is scheduled to begin and the existing McCollum Park tennis courts will be closed starting Aug. 1, 2022. During construction of the new McCollum Park courts, existing courts will be available at the following locations:
