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.
