NORMAL, Ill. — The Town of Normal now has state money to renovate an area park.
Maxwell Park in Normal will look a lot different starting this fall. The town is using $400,000 from the state and matching it with town funds.
The funds will be used to renovate the parks parking lot, dog park, softball fields and the disc golf course.
Tuesday night, town leaders held a meeting for community members, allowing them to have input on what the new disc golf course will look like.
“The biggest change is that we are going to have two courses,” said Dana Vicich, Designer of the new course. “We are going to have a separate, entry level, family beginner type course, which is going to be around 6-8 holes. We are going to have an 18 hole course that has a little more length and challenge.”
Leaders say the public hearing is important, because the people commenting will be the ones using it.
“We got some good ideas,” said Doug Damery, Town of Normal, Director of Parks and Recreation. “We really thought through some of this ourselves, so we’ve kind of been ahead of it a little. I feel really comfortable that we are on the right path.”
Leaders say because this new course will be completely remodeled, it won’t be open until next year, but they are confident everyone who plays it will enjoy it.
