On Saturday June 11, the Park District of Oak Park will hold a community celebration to mark the opening of Oak Park’s new, state-of-the-art Austin Gardens Environmental Education Center, located north of the intersection of Forest Avenue and Lake Street.
It looks like a terrific morning. We hope to see you all there (before or after the Farmers’ Market, of course). The morning kicks off with a free yoga class from 9 to 9:45 a.m. The festivities begin at 10 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Visitors can enjoy music, give-aways, light refreshments, “Ask the Turf and Tree Expert,” children’s crafts and tours of the Platinum LEED-designed facility.
