The Park District of Oak Park is continually piloting projects and adapting ideas from outside of the field of parks & recreation. These pilot projects are designed to have measurable outcomes and have the potential to be duplicated, whether at a larger scale in our own community, or by other park & recreation agencies and local governments across the country. Some ideas are big and others are small, but all have been implemented in an attempt to make a positive impact on the way that we serve and collaborate with our community.
The Park District of Oak Park received the J. Robert Havlick Award for Innovation in Local Government from the Alliance for Innovation for our submission, "Launch Pad: Getting Good Ideas Off the Ground". More details
