flower meadow 1657016 rSPRINGFIELD – The Oak Park Park District will receive $400,000 to renovate Stevenson Park, State Senator Don Harmon (D-Oak Park) announced today.

The money comes from a grant that is part of the state’s Open Space Land Acquisition and Development program, administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The program is providing more than $28 million to support 87 park projects across the state.

“Our parks are a wonderful resource, accessible to everyone in our communities,” Harmon said. “I am proud of all of the vibrant park districts in the 39th District and glad the Oak Park Park District has secured state support to continue its commitment to serve the people of Oak Park.”

The OSLAD program began in 1987 and has invested $419.4 million in 1,765 local park projects. The program receives dedicated funding from a percentage of the state’s Real Estate Transfer Tax.
