The Park District of Highland Park has just announced completion of the Rosewood Beach Sand Nourishment project.

According to the latest update, crews completed the delivery and placement of sand at both the Nature and Swimming Coves.

The Park District also added that the project team will begin removing the construction equipment the beach this week. The lake will continue flattening the newly placed material and creating a more stable slope.

Recent high lake levels coupled with powerful early fall storms have caused major damage to beaches all along the north shore. The USRDC recorded 11.5-foot waves during the severe storm on October 31, 2019.

The Park District’s quick action to implement the emergency sand nourishment project earlier this fall protected the Rosewood structures and parking lot from the devastating damage this storm, and others like it, could have caused.

The Park District is working with Smith Group to analyze future lake level projections and long-term options to protect the beach.
