Juilfs Park is the product of two parcels. In 1980, the south eight acres were donated by Elizabeth Juilfs. The remaining 18 acres were purchased from the Juilfs Foundation in 1983.
The Juilfs Foundation continues to provide significant annual donations to this park’s development. The grand opening was on July 19, 1986. The Park District Office is located in the former Juilfs family residence in Juilfs Park.
The courts were constructed in the Fall of 1998, after the APD was awarded a grant from the Anderson Foundation for Parks and Recreation and the Juilfs Foundation.
