Below is the list of activities planned for the park. You can get there early and do things on your own, or meet for lunch and go to the park afterward. It’s up to you!

We plan to meet at the Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery at 96 Yorktown Center in Lombard for lunch at 11:30am.  We will then meet at the park between 1-1:30pm to enjoy the spring blooms and some 40s jazz tunes from Swing Forward. There is a lot going on and you may choose to do any activities you wish.

Don't forget to bring a blanket and lawn chair if you plan to enjoy the concert.

There is no cost for this event. Any lunch or activities you do can be paid for at that time. We do, however, request that you register for the lunch so that we know how many will join us at the restaurant. Registration closes Thursday midnight May 3rd.

Come on out and enjoy the spring!
