David Whalen Community Park Many volunteers came together to refurbish the park in 2007 in the memory of David Whalen long time caretaker for the park. The Village Board by resolution named the former Community Park in his memory. It is currently used for various activities, including leagues, school use and recreational program use. A caretaker is hired throughout the late spring and summer months to maintain the fields. A special reservation form is available for use of the fields.
