Park District buys Sun Valley Farm By Christopher Petersen Press Publications Deicke Park will ahnost double in size, thanks to a deal made by the Huntley Park District to purchase property next to the park. The district will purchase the Sun Valley Farm, a 42- acre property along Main Street and just west of the exisiting park. "Plans ... include two baseball fields, three soccer fields, an ice skating rink.' The district has been trying to buy the property from the Deicke family for some time now, finally agreeing with the Deickes on a price of $1.2 mil¬ lion. Part of the cost will be defrayed with a $400,000 state grant from the Illinois De¬ partment of Natural Re¬ sources, the rest being paid for by district bonds. Plans for the land include two baseball fields, three soc¬ cer fields, an ice skating rink and hiking trails. There will also be a wetland and oak tree preserve on the site's westem end. Park officials also have plans for the farm already on the site, as it will become an educational exhibit on ag¬ ricultural life, including a pet¬ ting zoo and displays of an¬ tique farm equipment. The farm's house and barn were both built during the Civil War, and have remained true to the farm life of that time ever since. The McHenry County His¬ torical Society will work with the Park District to renovate and preserve the farmhouse and bam once the property is finally purchased. In the fu¬ ture, park officials would like to see an indoor recreation center in the park, but nothing definite has been discussed concerning that yet. The purchase of the Deicke farm will increase the dis¬ trict's land from 59.5 acres to 101.5 acres.
