The boat launch at Elgin Shores Forest Preserve will be closed from Tuesday May 27 to Friday, May 30 in order to do some minor repairs. The publically accessible boat launch is a recent addition to this park. The City of Elgin recently completed improvements to this Kane County Forest Preserve parcel located just east of the Continental Little League fields, east of Route 31 and south of Route 20. Improvements to this property include a new parking lot, wetland restoration, boat launch, fishing pier, and batting cages. A new playground and picnic shelter will be completed soon. Partial funding of these improvements will be provided with State of Illinois OSLAD funds.
