Nestled between Schaumburg Road and a nearby residential neighborhood and retirement community in Schaumburg's Olde Schaumburg Centre Historic District, Olde Schaumburg Centre Park provides stormwater detention for properties north and west of the park while offering a quiet place to sit, fish or play checkers.

Many of the pedestrian amenities were chosen to be improved to be compliant with current codes. The goals of the project included sidewalk replacement; updating bridge ramps and railings to meet code requirements; replacing the overlook support posts; and replacing decking on the boardwalk, overlook, and bridge with durable materials.

New panels of colored/patterned sidewalk were matched on-site to blend with existing sections. Circulation nodes of permeable pavers were installed to seamlessly blend grades and join existing sidewalk with new sidewalk.

Helical piers were installed to provide stable support of the overlook. Durable Trex decking, new furnishings, and a new gazebo were installed. Retaining walls were replaced, providing access to a peaceful area for people to fish.

Lastly, site furnishings were replaced with updated, safe materials.
