The Oak Brook Park District commissioned Wight to assist with the renovation of Central Park using our Design Led-Design Build methodology.

Originally constructed in the 1990s, the park was in need of updates and improvements to its infrastructure and amenities. The Park District successfully secured a $400K OSLAD Grant in 2015 and solicited various private donations to fund the park improvements. Improvements included:

  • All-inclusive play environment
  • Ball fields
  • Permeable paver parking lot
  • Trails
  • Fitness stations
  • Sports lighting
  • Archery
