Hattendorf Park Grand Opening
6/12/2021 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The new Hattendorf Park is ready for lift off! Join us at 225 E. Elk Grove Blvd. in Elk Grove Village for the Grand Opening of this highly anticipated new park that was designed with outdoor opportunities for children and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Music) learning! The area has a Focus on Flight theme and provides STEM stations to support engagement, education and fun learning. Focus on Flight also acknowledges the connections to aviation in our own community.
The new Hattendorf Park features an interactive walking path, an aircraft stabilizer sculpture, a pollinator garden (butterflies, insects and birds), a games area including Baggo, ladder toss and ping pong, an outdoor fitness area, music station, chess tables, lawn chess, checkers, and a path showcasing the wingspans of airplanes and birds.
