In October 2016, a new Event and Skate Plaza was unveiled behind the Village of Bourbonnais Administrative Building and the Municipal Center as a collaborative effort between the Village of Bourbonnais and the Bourbonnais Township Park District, with contributions from the Bourbonnais Friendship Festival. The project was initiated and largely-driven by the efforts of School Resource Officer (SRO) Travis Garcia of the Bourbonnais Police Department when SRO Garcia recognized a local need for kids who were skating in non-designated areas. The park now serves as a gathering place for the town's youth.
Plaza Hours of operation are 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. This Plaza is unsupervised. Use at your own risk.
