Park District Receives State Recognition


Best of the Best Green Practices Award

For the third year in a row, the Park District was the recipient of the Illinois Association of Park District’s Best Green Practices Award. Sustainability is engraved throughout the Park District and we have made significant strides over the last few years to lessen our impact on the environment while saving significant energy costs with the installation of LED lighting, smart thermostats, rain gardens, and cisterns in several park locations.
