(from Ch. 24, par. 11-97-2)
The corporate authorities of any municipality, whether
incorporated under the general law or a special charter, may lay out,
establish, open, alter, widen, extend, grade, pave, or otherwise improve
and maintain one or more driveways from the corporate limits of the
municipality to parks owned by the municipality outside its corporate
limits. The cost of these driveways may be paid out of any fund in the
municipal treasury, acquired under the authority of law for park purposes.
The corporate authorities may acquire the land necessary for this purpose
by purchase, legacy or gift, or in case the land cannot be so acquired,
they may acquire it by condemnation in the manner provided for the exercise
of the right of eminent domain under the Eminent Domain Act.
