CAUTION: Harmful Blue-Green Algae May Be Present

Possible Presence of Harmful Algal Bloom at Abbeywood Park Ponds

The Lisle Park District’s aquatic weed control contractor has identified an algae in the ponds at Abbeywood Park in Green Trails that they believe could be a harmful blue-green algae, otherwise referred to as a Harmful Algal Bloom, or HAB. The Park District has authorized them to take samples and have them analyzed to determine if in fact the algae in question is harmful.

In the meantime, the Illinois Department of Public Health makes the following recommendations:


  • Do not swim or wade through algal scums
  • Do not boat, water ski, jet ski, or fish where algal scum is present
  • Always shower off with soap and water after swimming in a lake, river, or pond
  • Do not let dogs drink, eat, or lick algal scum off their fur
  • Wash your dog off with clean water immediately if your dog swims or wades in water during an algal bloom

Signage has been posted at the ponds in question and once the lab results are known the Park District will provide additional information.

Van Kampen Memorial Stage Renovation

Renovations to the Van Kampen Memorial stage are currently underway in Community Park. Work includes expanding the size of the stage itself, filling in the water area in front of the stage, creating a dance lawn with a seat wall, construction of a small sound board dugout area, shoreline stabilization in the vicinity of the stage and natural area enhancements and expansion. Substantial completion is expected to occur this fall with final landscaping being completed in the spring of 2018.

Ashton Place - Leask Lane Park Development

Almost 2 ½ years in the making, the Lisle Park District along with Oak Creek Capital Partners – Ashton Place Series (OCCP) is in the midst of a combination park – residential development on the corner of Warrenville Road and Leask Lane. Through a land donation agreement and a development agreement with the Park District, OCCP is constructing a park on over 3 acres of the 8 acre plot that was mutually designed by Park District staff and OCCP’s landscape architect Gary Weber & Associates. Work has begun and weather and conditions permitting, the park should be completed later this year.
