Dolton Prak District 092518SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Napoleon Harris III (D-Harvey) announced this week the Dolton Park District has received a payment to continue a renovation project that began last October on their main field house.

The Dolton Park District will receive the $2 million grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources under the Park and Recreational Facility Construction Grant Program.

“This project will create a space for the park district and the community to use for a number of purposes and I am excited to see it continue,” Harris said. “This facility will serve as a community meeting place for outdoor activities and special occasions.”

Comptroller Suzanna Mendoza recently paid out $523,862 of the total grant money to the Dolton Park District, allowing the project to continue as planned.

The park district’s plans for expansion and renovation include:

  • A multipurpose room that seats more than 200
  • An outdoor patio for leisure activities
  • Meeting space and prep kitchen
  • Stage, dance floor and wedding accommodations
