Located in the heart of Old Town Algonquin, Towne Park is one of the village's most popular and heavily used parks.

The 12-acre park is located right off Main Street.

 

The park facility currently includes a baseball diamond, playground, benches, bathrooms and picnic area.

Unfortunately, these park elements are beyond their useful lives and without improvement could provide safety concerns.

In April, the village adopted a Parks and Recreation Master Plan that identified improvements to address over the next decade.

Towne Park is one of the 21 park sites the village maintains and was identified as a priority in the plan.

Due to the importance of this park to the community and Old Town Algonquin, the village has begun a Master Plan Study for improvements at the park. To learn more about this project, visit www.towneparkalgonquin.org.

Potential improvements include:

• Updated park layout;

• Improved visitor access for all users (bicyclists, motorists, pedestrians);

• New playground equipment;
