Mission Statement

As steward of public lands and recreational development, Prospect Recreation & Park District is dedicated to protecting, managing, expanding its parkland, and promoting opportunities for citizens to pursue sports, historic, cultural, and leisure time activities.




The playgrounds at Maple Grove Park are currently undergoing a total renovation. All of the existing playground structures will be removed and new equipment will be installed. The design features a variety of unique and fun play pieces. Some very custom pieces will provide the playgrounds with a whimsical theme that ties into the character of the Applewood neighborhood and the Clear Creek Valley. The layout will remain the same, with the north play pod being the 2 to 5 year old area and the south play pod for ages 5 to 12. The playground surfacing will be poured-in-place, a big improvement over the current engineered wood fiber material. Poured-in-place is a safe, attractive, and durable that requires virtually no maintenance.
