Over the past year, so much has changed in the Park District. One of the larger projects, which is now complete, is The Cardinal, a full continuum senior living community offering independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing care. Below, you can see its evolution from the start of construction in April 2014 through opening in April 2017. You can learn more details about The Cardinal on their website.
