Peoria Park District moving

The Peoria Park District will no longer operate out of the Glen Oak Pavilion after this week. Administrative and recreation services are moving to the new Bonnie W. Noble Center on Monday. That’s the former Lakeview Museum building located on Lake Avenue.

The Glen Oak Pavilion will be renovated to become a children’s museum once 90-percent of the funding for the project is raised. The campaign to build the Peoria PlayHouse has reached 85-percent so far.

In the meantime, the Peoria Park District will continue to staff the facility during the workday to get the building ready for construction and to keep the property safe.

Donations to build the children’s museum can be made at www.powerofplaypeoria.org.
