As part of the City’s and the Park District’s shared goal of ensuring that the newly renovated Memorial Park Bandshell provides an entertainment and performing arts venue for the community to enjoy while respecting the surrounding area, the City will be reviewing the past year’s activities during a discussion with the Wheaton Park District during the Wheaton City Council’s Planning Session at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 28 at Wheaton City Hall, 303 W. Wesley St. Remote participation will be available through Zoom for those who would like to attend virtually.
