Discover The Fun

Skating

Ice Skating Update - The ability to make outdoor ice is dependent on the weather.  Creating an outdoor ice rink at South Park is a priority for the District. At this time of year, we monitor the weather and have daily discussions to plan for the ice rink.  Currently, we plan to begin making ice the week of December 12.  Our criteria for making ice starts with temperatures below freezing for three (3) consecutive days; allowing the ground to freeze.  We then need approximately five (5) additional consecutive days of below-freezing daytime high temperatures to complete the outdoor ice rink at South Park. Snowfall affects our ability to create the rink, as a heavy snow during ice operations can create a soft and unmanageable surface.  For this reason, we typically will not make ice during a snow storm when more than 1” is expected.

#WhatsYourGoal

We know that the Centennial Activity Center is home to some of the most active seniors in the Chicagoland area.  Thank you to the Chicago Blackhawks organization for recognizing this too! We are so proud to have the Hawks come to the Park Ridge Park District!

Reforestation

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has had a devastating effect on both the Park Ridge community and the Park District. Ash trees are plentiful in our area, and unfortunately, many have been infected with this disease. The Park Ridge Park District has developed a reforestation plan to identify infected trees targeted for removal and determine recommendations for future tree plantings. Read more about the trees currently being removed, and the new trees that will be planted this fall with the monies raised by the Park Ridge Friends of the Parks 100 Trees for 100 Years program.

Looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything?

Continued funding to replace trees lost to disease throughout the Park Ridge parks remains, and as a result, the Park Ridge Friends of the Parks accepts ongoing donations for this cause through the Trees Forever program. Contributions are tax-deductible according to IRS laws. Donate online using the following links, or by mail.  Donations in honor of a friend or family are recognized with an engraved leaf on a bronze memorial tree located in the lobby at Maine Park Leisure Center at the following levels:
