Community members are invited to join the Deerfield Park District Board of Commissioners and staff for the dedication of Floral Park, located at the corner of Hazel Avenue and Wilmot Road in Deerfield. The dedication will take place on Saturday, August 21 at 1:30 pm.
At their November 19, 2020 Regular Board meeting, the Deerfield Park District Board of Commissioners voted on the renaming of Mitchell Park. The Park Board voted to change the name from Mitchell Park to Floral Park. The name was one option provided by an Advisory Committee that was comprised of representatives from local governments, agencies and citizens at large. Floral was the name of the initial subdivision planned for development in 1959 before the property acquisition was approved by a public election referendum in December 1959.
