UPDATE (10/3): Main Parking Lot Entrance Closure at Ackerman

Posted on: October 2, 2018

As the Ackerman Parking Lot Improvement Project nears completion, the main entrance off St. Charles Road and Riford Road into the park will be closed to all traffic from Wednesday, October 3rd through the morning of Saturday, October 6th. The road, while possibly not finished, will be reopened on Saturday, October 6th and remain open through the weekend. It may be closed again for a few days the week of October 7th; specific dates will be announced once determined. Also, during those same dates of closure, the main parking lot serving Ackerman Sports & Fitness Center (ASFC) and the drop-off lane / front parking area will not be accessible. This closure will enable asphalt work to occur within the main drive and the road going east towards the center of the park.

Signage will be in place near the lighted intersection at St. Charles Road and Riford Road directing traffic to the east. Access to the park and ASFC will be available at the east entrance of the property near Swift Avenue.

Please allow for additional time and use caution when driving through the park, particularly when entering and exiting the park from St. Charles Road. A reminder for those driving through Ackerman Park from the east, there are several speed bumps painted yellow throughout the drive towards ASFC.

The Glen Ellyn Park District apologizes for any inconvenience, values your continued patronage, and appreciates your patience and understanding during the improvement project. For more details on the project, please click here.
