CAUTION: Harmful Blue-Green Algae Present

Harmful Algal Bloom at Abbeywood Park Ponds

Some of the algae at the ponds at Abbeywood Park in Green Trails has been identified as harmful to animals and humans. The Park District is currently working with its aquatic weed control contractor and the EPA on treatment options. In the meantime, the Illinois Department of Public Health makes the following recommendations:

  • Do not swim or wade through algal scums
  • Do not boat, water ski, jet ski, or fish where algal scum is present
  • Always shower off with soap and water after swimming in a lake, river, or pond
  • Do not let dogs drink, eat, or lick algal scum off their fur
  • Wash your dog off with clean water immediately if your dog swims or wades in water during an algal bloom

Caution signage has been posted at the ponds. If you have additional questions, please call the Lisle Park District Parks Department at 630-968-1012.

Van Kampen Memorial Stage Renovation

Renovations to the Van Kampen Memorial stage are currently underway in Community Park. Work includes expanding the size of the stage itself, filling in the water area in front of the stage, creating a dance lawn with a seat wall, construction of a small sound board dugout area, shoreline stabilization in the vicinity of the stage and natural area enhancements and expansion. Substantial completion is expected to occur this fall with final landscaping being completed in the spring of 2018.
