Grayslake Park District Ponds and Waterways
The Grayslake Community Park District owns nearly 420 acres of open space, woodlands, grasslands, wetlands and ponds. Within that total acreage, the district has 14 retention ponds. The ponds are generally left to be in their intended natural state. However, there are a few areas, due mainly to environmental conditions, that may receive treatments for algae and invasive plants. Molly’s Pond is one location that has been placed on an annual treatment program. The retention pond within the Cambridge Homes subdivision by College Trail and Cambridge Parks is another location that has been identified for a treatment program in 2014 and again in 2015. If restrictions will apply, a written notice will be posted along the pond(s) and also delivered to residents who live along the water’s edge. Applications that require restriction notices will also be posted on this website.

Any questions regarding treatment programs should be directed to the Grayslake Community Park District at (847) 223-7529.
