Landscape Designer and Planner Ryan Bordewick will celebrate his 13th year with the Woodridge Park District this summer. He received his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2006 and shortly thereafter joined the Woodridge team. Ryan is responsible for the design, management and maintenance of park district properties and amenities. He handles the solicitation of bids and management of contracts of a variety of capital projects including park construction developments and parking lot and court maintenance. Additionally, he works directly with neighborhood and community groups to facilitate the planning of new parks and facilities.
Ryan was an avid park user growing up in central Illinois and feels that future generations should be afforded the same opportunities as he did to get outside and experience the sensory aspects of nature, the invigoration of play and the satisfactions of athletic competition.
During his free time, Ryan enjoys traveling, working in his yard, cheering for the Cubs and Fighting Illini and restoring vintage, modern furniture. He, his wife and two cats reside in Downers Grove.
