The Roselle Park District is once again in the process of applying for the PARC grant. This grant was specifically designed to spur “brick and mortar” projects and will reimburse the winners of the grant up to 75% of the project cost. Due to the last minute funding by the Department of Natural Resources, the District must act fast in order to meet the submittal time line of March 3, 2014. The Board has given authorization to hire an architect firm to design a new Turner Park Field House and submit our PARC grant application. Prior to submittal we would like to have an initial meeting with residents to review a conceptual plan. Click here to view site plan. Click here to view floor plan. Click here to view renderings.
Due to the building’s current condition and life expectancy, it would be demolished and a similar prairie style building would be built. The new building would be expanded significantly to the north and east for a total footprint of approximately 6800 square feet. While the new building is currently in the concept phase, we are envisioning a one-story building containing two large rooms with dividers to create four multipurpose/programming rooms, kitchenette, a large deck and multiple washrooms on both the exterior and interior to accommodate park as well as building users. We would also propose replacing the basketball court and rebuilding the Lions Club gazebo. The building will be used for a variety of programs which may include adult and senior programs as well as rental opportunities.
Ice Skating at Turner Pond is closed. Red flag no skating! The outdoor skating areas located at Turner Park, 81 E. Devon Ave, Roselle. The pond has designated areas for ice skating and recreational hockey, please see signage on site. If conditions change the website will be updated!
Skating on Turner Pond is allowed only when a GREEN FLAG is flying at the pond. If there is NO FLAG or a RED FLAG, NO SKATING is permitted.
All skating areas are unsupervised. During the winter, the parks department will regularly test the depth of the ice. They will also clean off the south section of the pond which will be designated for ice skating. (As a reminder, snow removal from the paths and parking lots is the District’s first priority during storm clean up, followed by ice skating at Turner Pond.) Hours: Sunday thru Thursday: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm. Friday and Saturday: 10:00 am to 9:00 pm, (weather permitting).
Artificial-surface Ice Skating Rink
The artificial-surface ice skating rink previously located in Roselle’s Town Center Plaza is open for the season. The rink is located on Roselle Park District property near the sled hill behind Clauss Recreation Center. The rink has been set up over the basketball courts near Clauss Barn at 430 Mensching Rd. Parking is available off Mensching Rd.
The unique, eco-friendly plastic polymer rink surface does not require water or freezing temperatures and is best enjoyed with freshly sharpened skates. Hours: The rink will be open from dawn until dusk (weather permitting); skate rental will not be available on site. Please call the Roselle Park District at (630) 894-4200 for more information
Park District Paths
Please Note: Snow removal from the paths and parking lots is done on a continuous basis until completed.
During extreme snowfall where the snowfall amount and/or accompanying severe drifting, the time limits to clear all paths may be extended. We ask for your patience and cooperation.
