In April of 1958, a bond issue of $450,000 was approved, making possible the acquisition and partial development of the 6 acre Edwin Rugen Park. The park was named after Edwin Rugen, one of the original park board commissioners of the Glenview Park District,

In March of 1962, a bond issue of $685,000 was approved for purposes of park development.  During 1962 and 1963, a portion of these funds made possible the addition of a field house (1962) and other improvements at Rugen Park.

In 1970, a general obligation bond issue of $214,000 was passed which paid for general security lighting of Rugen Park.

In December 1975, the voters of the District approved a general obligation bond issue in the amount of $450,000. Among the projects financed by this bond was the construction of three tennis courts at Rugen Park.
