Thursday, May 12, 2016 Maple Trails Park reopened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included guests from the River Trails Park District Board of Commissioners, Mayor Arlene A. Juracek, Village Manager, Mike Cassady, Community Development Director, Bill Cooney and members from the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce, Cummins Allison, River Trails Park and Recreation Foundation, Northwest Special Recreation Association and Mount Prospect Park District. The opening celebration included activities, games and light refreshments.

The redesign park allows the community to participate in unique recreational activities for all ages and abilities through ADA complaint playground equipment. The district designed these plans from scratch in a way that would be perfect for a middle sized basketball court, caged rail system for futsal with built-in goals and a volleyball court with new artificial turf. Maple Trails Park and paths are enjoyed by many businesses in the Kensington Business Center. Maple Trails Park includes walking/cycling paths, gazebo, along with a basketball, volleyball and futsal courts. This park is located in Kensington Business Center on 871 Feehanville Drive, Mount Prospect, IL 60056.
