We are so excited to watch the progress of renovations at Maine Park! We thank you for your patience and understanding while we all work through this together. Phase One is completed and we are on to Phase Two, which is anticipated to be completed by the end of the summer.
There is so much still being developed at Prospect Park! In 2017, we will be adding an additional playground and a Picnic Pavilion. In addition, the athletic field will open this fall, and renovations to Solomon Cottage will be completed.
Work on the Hinkley Park Restroom is scheduled to begin in August. Stay up-to-date on the progress and plans here.

In 2016, the Park District has implemented so many wonderful programs and improved facilities. Read a Year in Review from Executive Director Gayle Mountcastle, as well as a 2016 financial recap and how your taxes make a difference in the community.
To celebrate summer, the Park District has launched a 12-week campaign - Unplug Park Ridge, which is part of a larger Unplug Illinois campaign. Throughout the summer, we will share how our staff and Board unplugs with the Park Ridge Park District, profiles of places you can unplug with the Park District, and benefits of parks and recreation. We also want to see how you unplug with the Park Ridge Park District! Share a photo or video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag#UnplugParkRidge. Each week, we will randomly select someone to receive a great prize from the Park District. So, get out there and show us "What's Your Outlet?".
