77th Street Underpass project will impact Washington Park through 2023

The 77th Street Underpass project starts on Wednesday, July 21, and will affect Washington Park for the next several years.

Please note the following impacts:

  • Washington Park trail access from 77th Street and Bloomington Avenue will be closed
  • Soccer fields on the south side of the park will be closed
  • The park building will be closed
  • Washington Park should be accessed from the parking lot and trail off of 76th Street
  • There will be full access to the pickleball and basketball courts, as well as the playground
  • The playground will remain open throughout much of the project, but will need to be closed intermittently for safety
Washington Park will have improved soccer fields and trails by the end of the project in 2023.
