The Des Plaines Park District will demolish an old building near Lake Opeka that most recently served as a staff meeting location for day camp programming.
The small building has been at 2252 Lee Street since the 1960s, and once was used as a construction trailer. But over time it's become an "eyesore" and officials have been looking to get rid of it, said John Hecker, the park district's executive director.

Day camp counselors met in the building at the start of their day, but otherwise the structure was used for storage, Hecker said.
Plans call for the building to come down by this winter.
