Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Once again summer has slipped by very quickly. After some major hindrances, the Bath & Tennis Club pool was able to open this past season. I would like to thank all of our loyal members for their patience during this unparalleled time. I would also like to convey my appreciation to our Interim Village Manager Jim Kruger who stepped up to guide the operations and our Public Works staff, under the leadership of Rick Valent, for their dedication and extraordinary efforts during this season. Even though our partnership with the Oak Brook Park District will not continue, the Village of Oak Brook staff and our Sports Core Advisory Committee will be diligently working to ensure the quality experience that Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club members expect and deserve will endure. The Oak Brook Golf Club is having a phenomenal year, rounds of golf are at all-time high levels and the patio, bar and grill are seeing an increase in patronage. Kudos to the OBGC staff; their hard work and commitment are evident in the quality experience they have cultivated.
The Oak Brook Polo season has just ended. We are excited to announce that the Village of Oak Brook has entered into a 12 year agreement with Pineoaks Partners to bring Polo to the Cecil Smith Field, commonly known as Butler National Golf Course’s driving range. This will allow for safe play and a more enjoyable spectator experience.
It is an exciting time for new development in the Village. We recently celebrated the much anticipated opening of RH. Their beautiful 60,000 square foot building with indoor and outdoor space and a breathtaking Rooftop Restaurant & Park is a must see and a welcome addition to Oakbrook Center. Recent restaurant openings include Blanco Cocina & Cantina which boasts a fresh twist on Mexican favorites in a friendly atmosphere and is located at 2022 Spring Rd. Sweetgreen is a destination for delicious food that is both healthy and locally sourced; it recently opened at 1817 Oakbrook Center. Real Urban BBQ has reopened under new management offering the same great BBQ that we’ve come to expect.
Also, next month, Polo Ralph Lauren, featuring their classic styles and renowned customer service will open at 630 Oakbrook Center. Fogo De Chao Steakhouse will bring their upscale, all-you-can-eat tableside-carved Brazilian meat and extensive wine list to 1205 22nd St. And at 1828 Oakbrook Center, Puttshack, a 25,000 square foot entertainment venue, which includes four mini-golf courses, food, drinks and private event space, will be ready for patrons.
Lastly, as we navigate through vaccines and boosters we are reminded of how far we have come in the struggle with COVID-19. If we stay the course we will see this through as a community.
As always, our Trustees, staff, and I are here to serve you. Please feel free to contact any of us with your thoughts, ideas and concerns.
With kind regards,
Gopal G Lalmalani. MD, MBA.
