Langdon Beach Access Path
Option Overview and Survey
In 2020, Langdon Beach was closed due to significant beach erosion. Since that time, the Wilmette Park District has been working with engineers from SmithGroup to analyze Langdon's shoreline and develop solutions to protect the beach and bluff for future generations. In addition, an access path to the beach must be built.
The water levels in Lake Michigan have receded and the Park District hopes to open access to the beach via a temporary path as soon as possible.
Over the past 12+ months, SmithGroup has worked closely with the Park District and members of our community to design, analyze, and refine long-term access path options. Two final design options remain. The Wilmette Board of Park Commissioners hope to approve a design at their regular meeting on Monday, July 10. We are asking for your input. Tell us which you prefer!
