The Downers Grove Park District is partnering with the Village of Downers Grove for a dredging project at Barth Pond in Patriots Park.
The project, which will begin this week and last around four months, is needed to help improve the health of the pond for plants and aquatic life.
Over the next four months around two feet of silt will be “hydraulically dredged” from the pond bottom using a floating barge. During this time the east parking lot (55th Street and Grand Ave) will be closed to the public.
