Ribbon Cutting for Veterans Park Set for Tuesday, Nov. 20 in Lake Forest

LAKE FOREST...The construction of Veterans Park is nearing completion and the grand opening for the park is scheduled for 4 pm.. Tuesday, November 20 at the front entrance off Ridge Route Drive.  The event will include a ribbon cutting ceremony and light refreshments will be available.

The public is encouraged to join City leaders for the grand opening event and enjoy the redesigned facility that features meandering sidewalks, an updated lake shore, a butterfly garden and a veterans monument to honor members of all five branches of the armed forces.

Those who enjoy the park may notice reflective devices that the City deployed at various locations to discourage waterfowl from nesting.  These devices do not harm the birds in any way but prevent the waterfowl from becoming too comfortable.  As a reminder, the City of Lake Forest Wildlife Ordinance prohibits the feeding of animals at the facility. This ordinance not only discourages nesting but also acts to prevent the animals from ingesting potentially harmful foods. The park is patrolled and violators of the ordinance are subject to a $100 fine. 

Additionally, the City installed a camera system to discourage vandalism and identify individuals who feed the animals in violation of the City’s Wildlife Ordinance. In approximately two weeks, residents will be able to view real time video footage of the facility and report any suspicious activity.
