2012 Park Foundation State & Federal Tax Reports
The Grayslake Community Park District and the Grayslake Park Foundation joined in response to the community by designating a walkway and pond area in Central Park where family and friends can honor their loved ones and significant life events with the donation of trees and landscaping. The newly designated “Reflection Pond and Walk-way” provides an opportunity for community members to enhance Central Park with the lasting and living gift of trees. Birthdays, anniversaries, or the loss of a loved one can be commemorated with the donation of a tree that will be planted to eventually form a canopy over the Reflection Walkway. The result will be a beautiful and serene area for reflection and remembrance in the heart of Grayslake. Each tree or other landscaping will be marked with a 6” x 8” brass plate that the purchaser can have 4-6lines imprinted with the name and phrase of their choosing. Trees and landscaping can be purchased at any time but plantings will be done in the spring and the fall. For more information please call the Grayslake Park District office at 847-223-7529.
Central Park, located in the center of Grayslake serves the community of Grayslake and surrounding area. With extensive enhancements under construction this summer and fall, Central Park will provide a new open space experience and focal point for young and old residents of Grayslake and the surrounding communities.
You can be part of the ongoing development of Central Park by leaving your personalized imprint on our customized brick walkway. This pathway is located between the softball and football fields on the south end of Central Park.
Be a part of Central Park by leaving a lasting donation to help further develop other parts of the park.
