New Slides at Chartwell Park
Fri December 22, 2017
In late November, the Park District was able to complete its latest park improvement for 2017. The 3 stainless steel slides at Chartwell Park were replaced with 3 heavy-duty plastic slides. “This has been a long awaited improvement requested by the neighbors of the park for years” explained Mark Pawlowski, WPD’s Executive Director. The challenge was locating a sales rep in the Illinois area for the playground manufacturer and equipment supplier. TJ Banks, Parks Foreman stated, “It was a challenge, but I was able to find the correct equipment supplier in Portland, OR”. The plastic slides will make summer more enjoyable as the steel slides were often too hot to use during the daytime. Chartwell Park is a neighborhood park located at 27W220 Chartwell Dr.
