Wilmette Park District Seeks Ways To Decongest Gillson Park Beach

More than 400 boats, dozens of paddleboard users call Gillson Park beach home during the summer.


Wilmette Park District is looking at three options to help sailors, kayakers, windsurfers and stand-up paddleboard users moving safely along the beach near Gillson Park during the May-October season, Wilmette Life reported. 

Among the options include moving paddleboard users to the South Beach non-swimming area or moving paddleboard use to Langdon Beach—both options have potential problems and staff is researching the options before sharing it with the park board’s recreation committee on March 18, Wilmette Life reported.
