  1. Is the dog park currently open? We’ve been waiting for months and it looks amazing! Our favorite park, thanks for all you do.

    • Hi Tori. Unfortunately, it is not open yet. They are tying up a few things still–namely solenoid, fencing and remediation issues. We know this is starting to send like a tired refrain, but we hope that we’ll be able to reopen soon. Thanks for your continued patience. We are getting there, slowly but surely. Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi there! Is there any known reason why this project has taken 6 months when it was estimated at 6-8 weeks? I drive past it going to and coming from work every day and I can count on 1 hand the number of times I’ve actually seen people working on it this whole time. I don’t know if this is project is just not a priority for the contractor or if they’re doing half days or what. Can anything be done to get this across the finish line faster? It seems like it’s been *this close* to opening for the last month now. I know, I know: patience is a virtue. But 4 months behind schedule is pretty bad. Thanks!

    • Hi Pat. Unfortunately, the timing is beyond our control. The Park District is in charge of their contractors. There were a number of hiccups with timely delivery of needed items, weather delays etc. Now we are waiting on a remediation solution for the ground. We know this is starting to send like a tired refrain, but we hope that we’ll be able to reopen soon. Thanks for your continued patience. We are getting there, slowly but surely.If you would like to help get things moving, kindly reach out to Deb Groh of Horner Park and Alderwoman Rosanna Rodriguez (33rd) to voice your concern.
