Your chance to shine and focus on yourself

Park Ridge Park District works hard to ensure seniors in our community have an array of options for staying active and engaged. First, there’s our S.T.A.R. membership, where there’s always something going on, no matter what your interest. Throughout the year, an array of S.T.A.R. clubs, activities, trips, and events are offered. You're bound to discover new interests and new friends.

Then there are the exceptional programs and outings we offer adults, giving you a chance to enjoy time with others. In fact, the hardest part about taking advantage of all that’s available is deciding what it is you want to do first. View the programs below.
