Elder Centennial Park & Beach

The Winnetka Park District is pleased to present the lakefront improvement plan for Elder Lane Park and Beach + Centennial Park and Beach. The plan combines two independent parks into one park totaling approximately eight acres. The plan also provides nearly 1,000 feet of uninterrupted shoreline and unparalleled public beach access in Winnetka. https://www.winpark.org/elder-centennial-design-development/

Population(s) Served

A multi-use outdoor pavilion would be built adjacent to our Ice Arena. It would be used for ice hockey & figure skating during the winter months. During non hockey and skating months, a temporary sport court could be installed on top of the concrete, creating space for lacrosse, pickleball, fitness classes, concerts, comedy shows etc.. With very few covered recreation facilities in the area, there is also a significant need among athletic organizations for this type of space, which would bring in revenue to our facilities.
