The Park Ridge Park District recognizes that certain organizations exist within the community to serve and enhance recreational opportunities for a specific purpose and group.

These organizations are separate and independent from the Park District and provide for their own leadership, organizational, and operational structure. Although the stated missions of the organizations may differ, the contractual relationship between the Affiliate and the Park District creates a mutually beneficial environment in which to provide quality recreation for all the individuals served by the parties, as well as the general public. The Park District recognizes that at times it is in the best interest of the community that the Park District work with outside organizations in coordinating, integrating, and consolidating the planning and provision of recreational facilities and programs when basic functions are compatible and a public benefit may be derived. Through working relationships with outside organizations and joint efforts, each party can contribute to greater public service without relinquishing their separate identities or any of their individual responsibilities.

Thank you to the following organizations that the Park Ridge Park District has established Affiliate relationships:
