More About Plunkett Park
Named after the Rev. Msgr. William J. Plunkett, a priest at Immaculate Conception Parish in Elmhurst, Plunkett Park is a prime spot for baseball games under the lights. Immaculate Conception High School used the land for its athletic field prior to selling the property to the Park District in 1971. The school still hosts home games here. At the south end of Plunkett Park is Courts Plus, a center for health, sports and fitness run by the Elmhurst Park District. Courts Plus includes a lap pool, fitness center, racquet sports, a climbing wall and lots of group exercise classes.
