The Woodridge Park District has launched "cypresscove.org"
Looking for information about Woodridge's popular aquatic park? Cypress Cove Family Aquatic Park now has its own site, cypresscove.org. The new site includes (among much more information): Before, patrons needed to navigate through the Woodridge Park District website under "Park & Facilities" to "Cypress Cove." That sometimes made it difficult for patrons to find information, which meant the burden of more phone calls to the park district for hours and basic questions. You can still access the Cypress Cove site from woodridgeparks.org. You'll click a link that takes you directly to the new Cypress Cove site. Visit the new Cypress Cove site here
