Consultants from EEA worked with the Lemont Park District to conduct major renovations and additions at their Centennial Park site, a 45-acre property previously home to an outdoor lap pool and small fitness center.
EEA assisted the Park District in converting the outdoor pool to a zero-depth entry aquatic facility, complete with swimming pools, diving boards, various aquatic play features, and concession stand. Additionally, the fitness center was expanded into a comprehensive recreation facility housing an indoor lap pool, enhanced fitness and cardio center, fieldhouse and office space.
To best serve the site, EEA consultants designed multiple detention basins, new utility connections and a parking lot expansion to serve a higher volume of visitors to the site. Permitting was coordinated with the Village of Lemont, Illinois agencies and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRDGC).
