2020 and Beyond

Celebrating Evanston’s newest community center

In 2020, the City will celebrate the completion of the Robert Crown Community Center and Library project.

Decades in the making, the new facility will provide residents with a new library branch, gymnasium, indoor running track, two NHL-sized ice rinks, meeting rooms, multipurpose rooms, a childcare and education facility, artificial turf fields, and so much more.

Many City departments worked throughout 2019 to make this project a reality, including Public Works, Parks, Recreation & Community Services, the Evanston Public Library, Administrative Services, the City Manager’s Office, and more.

The facility is now open, and the community will celebrate its open house and invocation on March 14. Athletic fields will be completed following deconstruction of the previous center, with the entire project expected to be completed in August 2020.

Thank you to the many community partners and organizations who made this landmark project possible, including Friends of Robert Crown and the more than 1,000 residents who donated to support the project.
