Bourbonnais, IL – The Village of Bourbonnais and Bourbonnais Township Park District announce the seasonal skate equipment has returned to the outdoor park located behind the Village of Bourbonnais Administration Building at 600 Main Street NW. The recreational space is a collaborative effort between both organizations with contributions from the Bourbonnais Friendship Festival and provides a safe location for the community to skate. Park hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. or dusk, whichever comes first. Safety rules are posted and will be enforced.
“The Event and Skate Plaza is available for all ages to enjoy,” explained Mayor Paul Schore. “We are pleased to offer a free and fun gathering place for the community. Let’s remember to be courteous to all skaters.”
“It is a sure sign spring is just around the corner when the skate park reopens,” said Hollice Clark, Executive Director at Bourbonnais Township Park District. “We are so glad we can partner with the Village of Bourbonnais in bringing this great space to our community.”
During the colder months of the year, the Event and Skate Plaza is flooded and transformed into an ice-skating rink. The space further serves the annual Bourbonnais Friendship Festival during the last week of June.
