Lake Forest Athletic Field Improvements

Jason will provide an update on City's improvments to the athletic fields at Deerpath Community Park.

At the Lake Forest City Council Meeting on Tuesday, February 21, the City Council formally approved construction of synthetic turf athletic fields and additional park amenities at Deerpath Community Park. City Council approved the base athletic field project for $12.9 million plus $3.1 million for additional amenities, including two restroom buildings with shaded open air pavilions, a playground, fitness stations, and natural area enhancements. Other park improvements include new tennis courts and the City’s first dedicated pickleball courts in the existing court footprint. This project is the culmination of a years-long planning effort that began with City Council approval of a Parks and Recreation Master Plan in 2019.
