#UnplugParkRidge

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?".
