Nesting at Heritage Park

Please be aware that there is nesting wildlife at Heritage Park. Based on the location of the nest, a small area of the Heritage Park playground has been roped off and is temporarily closed. We are asking that patrons avoid this area for their own safety and the safety of the wildlife. The Park District thanks you for your cooperation and understanding!
