As reported in the Daily Herald, Des Plaines is planning $400,000 in improvements to Apache Park and the surrounding neighborhood. Officials say the improvements are part of an effort to improve the safety and well-being of the neighborhood. City aldermen and park board commissioners this week unanimously endorsed a grant application for state funds that would help fund the Apache Park project.
“I think it’s really going to change the whole atmosphere in the park and it’s going to draw people to the park and make it a destination, which I don’t think it’s ever been,” said 5th Ward Alderman Jim Brookman, whose ward includes the Apache Park neighborhood.
