Six new pickleball courts are now open, allowing additional opportunities for the community to enjoy this increasingly popular paddle sport! Included in our Capital Improvement Plan for 2019, the courts are the Northbrook Park District’s first dedicated space for pickleball. Drop-in players and rentals are welcome, and pickleball clinics and leagues will begin in spring 2020.
Built inside the Stonegate subdivision, north of Willow Road and west of Landwehr Road, the park offers two play areas, two baseball diamonds, two tennis and pickelball courts, picnic tables and a shelter, a seasonal soccer field, path and a parking lot.
Stonegate Park is an available location for our Tree and Bench Donation Program. Bench donations either replace an aging bench or add a bench to open space, a bronze donor recognition plaque will be attached to the seatback of the bench. A tree donation includes the installation of a 2‐3 inch‐diameter tree and an engraved brass leaf, mounted on a donation wall at the Northbrook Leisure Center. For more information, you can check out the Tree and Bench Donation Program page.
Stonegate Park originally consisted of 6.15 acres. The Park District had purchased one-quarter acre, and the Red Seal Corporation, a developer, donated the rest. The West Northfield School District, which had acquired 4.46 acres from the developer, sold that parcel to the Park District in 2001. The Park District received an Open Space Land Acquisition Development (OSLAD) grant to help offset construction costs. The official dedication was held on October 30, 1999, and a plaque at the site honors Northbrook resident Marcia Marshall for her efforts in getting the subdivision built. She had organized the West Northfield Coalition, which worked with the Village to keep developers from turning the land into commercial property.
