Just in time for summer, Sunset Park in Lake in the Hills has received some upgrades.
A new vaulted, double restroom opened at Sunset Parkon April 26, according to a village of Lake in the Hills press release.
In addition, the park added two bleachers for its softball fields and five Big Belly Solar Powered trash compactors. The solar-powered trash compactors "will reduce staff trips to empty garbage, reduce emissions from the trucks that pick up the garbage and overall are healthier for the environment," according to the news release.
Funded by an Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity grant, the improvements cost just under $100,000, according to the the village of LITH.
