Capital Improvements

The Lindenhurst Park District continues to do capital improvements and provide equipment related to the Americans with Disabilities Act.  In the past few years, several of our parks have undergone transformations to help make them accessible to all.  These improvements could not have transpired without special recreation funding.  New programs, facilities and park improvements - thanks to you and special recreation funding!
