Winston Park Greenway

Residents Claiming Park District Property for Themselves

Starting in the late 1970s, the Palatine residents who live on the west side of David Drive in the Winston Park neighborhood began laying claim upon publicly-owned Park District property by constructing fences, building play structures & gardens, and mowing the natural vegetation that had been growing along the North Branch of the Salt Creek.

The amount of land encroached upon varies between each property, but a 50 foot wide encroachment is typical. On the extreme end, the 12 N. Winston Drive parcel is encroaching a full 150 feet into Palatine Park District property.

To put it bluntly, these adjacent property owners want a part of our beloved Maple Park for themselves, at the expense of the enjoyment of the greenway by others.

This unauthorized use of publicly owned land by private land owners must stop. We are asking that the adjacent property owners immediately remove all manmade objects from the Palatine Park District property, as well as to stop mowing down the vegetation.
