Oak Brook Park District Open Space Referendum Passes

Oak Brook Park District Open Space Referendum Passes

While the results are preliminary, it appears that the referendum to acquire the McDonald’s Fields has passed. The referendum’s success enables the Park District to advance in its mission to provide the very best in park and recreational opportunities and open lands for our community.

The Park District would like first to express its gratitude to the voters for supporting this important referendum on open space. We would also like to extend a special thank-you to each of those committed community members who took an active role in supporting the referendum, and to the many residents who attended our open houses to learn more. The vote demonstrates our residents’ continuing commitment to meet the essential recreational needs of our community, and to maintain Oak Brook’s exceptional quality of life for generations to come.

The Park District plans to begin its efforts to acquire the McDonald’s Fields immediately. Please look for updates at www.obparks.org/programs/oak-brook-park-district-open-space-project, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
