To date, that illuminated soccer field has yet to be used. Nevertheless, the River Forest Park District board and the River Forest Youth Soccer board want to install additional athletic field lighting on the west side of Keystone Park.

Many residents living near Keystone Park in River Forest oppose the installation of additional stadium-style high-intensity field lights on the west side of Keystone Park. We fully support youth soccer, and we empathize with the challenges of running this wonderful program.

However, we do oppose any erosion of our neighborhood character and the effort to turn all of Keystone Park into a fully-lighted athletic complex.
