The Cary Park
District works with our residents to produce user friendly parks
that families can enjoy. In the last few years we have completed
23 playground installations including our most recent at West Lake and Chalet Hills Park.
Beginning in April the Park District will begin installing a paved trail along the Lions Park access drive off of Silver Lake Road. The trail will provide safe pedestrian access from Silver Lake Road, along the Lions Park access drive, to the path that provides access to the ballfields, concession stand, and restrooms. The construction is anticipated to be complete in June. View Map
It's a sticky trap that Illinois Department of Agriculture officials and cooperators are using to identify where the invasive pest Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is. The traps will not bring Emerald Ash Borer into the area that is already not infested. It will help officials determine if Emerald Ash Borer is already present in the area. The trap uses Manuka oil as an attractant to lure the beetle to it if Emerald Ash Borer is in the area. The surface of the trap is coated with a sticky material which causes the Emerald Ash Borer to adhere to it. The Emerald Ash Borer flight season is from May through August. The traps will be removed after the flight season is complete. Then the traps will be examined for the presence of Emerald Ash Borer.
