Arlington Heights Park District is anticipating renovation at Arlington Lakes Golf Club on the south side of town starting June 2015, and upgrades at Lake Arlington on the north side of town starting Spring 2016.


Arlington Lakes Golf Club Renovation
Renovation construction at the golf course will include …

• nine holes re-built with reversal of 1 to 18-hole layout

• re-grass of all 18 holes

• addition of “junior” tee boxes about half distance of fairways

• sand traps reduction from 106 to 50

• creation of continuous paths for motorized golf carts

• re-location of putting practice to front of clubhouse

• patio addition with bar and grill at the back of the clubhouse

The reversal of the 18-hole layout will accommodate a plan to allow golfers to play shorter 3-hole or 6-hole rounds.

The estimated $2.4 million construction project is dependent on bids, and is expected close the golf course from June 7, 2015 until July 1, 2016. The construction project will be funded out from the park district’s capital projects fund. Some costs will be saved by using Arlington Park District staff to remove trees and some other construction preparation work.

The Arlington Lakes banquet hall will remain open for parties and events year round during the construction.

Alternatives for golfers in Arlington Heights include Rolling Green Country Club’s highly rated 18-hole golf course at Rand Road and Euclid Avenue, and Arlington Heights Park District’s Nickol Knoll 9-hole course near Dundee Road and Kennicott Avenue.

Lake Arlington Renovation
The Arlington Heights Park District has been awarded a 2014/15 OSLAD Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Governor Quinn announced the award on January 3rd that the Park District will receive $400,000 to implement a variety of improvements at Lake Arlington Park.

The Open Space Land Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) program is administered by the IDNR and is funded by the state real estate transfer tax. Arlington Heights Park District was one of 72 communities to receive funding for 75 Illinois projects, which require a 50 percent match.

The Planning Department is currently in design development, planning and permitting stages for the project, with construction slated to take place in Spring 2016. Some of the improvements will include:

Widen and repave the path around Lake Arlington
Large Picnic Shelter
Sensory Garden*
Exercise Stations along the path
Fishing Pier
Expanded Boat Dock
Radio-Controlled Boat Area
Landscaping Improvements
Updated Park Furniture and Signs…and more

* Sensory Gardens usually have an enhanced design to permit wheelchair access/accessibility concerns, provide a stimulating journey through the senses of smell and touch, provide heightened awareness, and bring positive learning experiences. Although features have not been confirmed, some sensory gardens include textured touch-pads, water fixtures that make sounds or music, magnifying-glass screens, and displays with audio and braille.

Construction at Lake Arlington is expected to occur during Spring 2016.

The Arlington Heights Park District expressed gratitude to residents who provided feedback for the master planning process.
