Woodland Waterfall Ribbon
Sun, May 19, 12-1pm
Join us as we cut the ribbon for the beautifully restored Woodland Waterfall feature. On June 29, long- time Oak Park resident Dr. Audrey L. Kouvel presented a generous $54,000 donation to the Parks Foundation of Oak Park to restore the historic Woodland Waterfall Garden located in the southeast corner of the two acre grounds of Cheney Mansion. This significant landscape element is more than 100 years old, and has not been in working order for more than 30 years. Once completed, this restored element will enhance the already stunning grounds of Cheney Mansion.
