New turf at Willowbrook


The installation of new synthetic turf at Willowbrook High School’s stadium has been completed. The synthetic turf that covered the stadium field for nearly 15 years was removed at the end of the 2023-24 school year. The stadium field at Willowbrook featured natural grass before synthetic turf was installed prior to the 2009-10 school year. This photo, taken recently by Villa Park Village Trustee Kevin Patrick (who is also a drone photographer), shows an aerial view of the newly installed turf. The Warriors’ football team will open its 2024 season with a non-conference home game against Glenbard East on Aug. 30.
