Garvanian Park was originally a Lake County Sanitary Treatment Facility which was no longer used. It was purchased by the Park District in 1980. Development began shortly afterward, when a playground and landscaping were added in 1981. In 1999, the playground was upgraded with new equipment, followed by the re-surfacing of the bike path in 2000. Garvanian Park is also connected to the Continental Executive Park and to Stone Fence Farm subdivision by footbridge.
