The Morton Park District recently announced that it has accepted a property that has been gifted to the District by the late Jeff Green family and Dave and Dan Maloof.

This property is a 13.5-acre parcel of land that sits along W. Ashland Street in Morton. The property contains a four-acre lake and 9.5 acres of open land. The Park District will work over the next couple of years to develop the property before opening it up to public use. The final product will result in a beautiful, public fishing location as well as a walking trail.

The Morton Park District would like to express its gratitude to the late Jeff Green family as well as Dave and Dan Maloof for their generosity. This gift will be a unique addition to the properties the Park District manages for public use.
