Open Space at the Friendship Park Conservatory


In the fall of 2017, the park district acquired the home in front of the Friendship Park Conservatory (395 W. Algonquin Road) with the intention of creating open space and enhancing the street view of the the Conservatory from Algonquin Road.

Demolition of the home began in March and the area will be seeded and put back into turf once completed.
