DeKALB – The DeKalb Park District will hold two meetings to collect input on its Welsh Park Master Plan and restoration work on the Nature Trail, according to a news release.

The Nature Trail meeting will be at 6 p.m. Monday in the Hopkins Park Terrace Room, 1403 Sycamore Road. The meeting to discuss the Welsh Park Master Plan will be at 6 p.m. April 29 at the Welsh Park Shelter, 651 Russell Road, with a weather-related back-up location at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 830 N. Annie Glidden Road.

The meeting for the Nature Trail will include an update on the progress of the restoration work, according to the release. Discussion also will include work that was started on the north side of the trail, and additional future plans set for the south side of the trail later in 2019.

The district also is looking for community feedback at the Welsh Park meeting. Representatives from the district staff, board and consulting firm Upland Design will present concepts for renovations. The district is seeking comments on the design itself, and recommendations on what aspects should be included in the final master plan, according to the release.

Residents wishing to provide comments or ask questions about either project can email Amy Doll, district executive director, at adoll@dekalbparkdistrict.com or call 815-758-6663, ext. 7265.
