It was a busy summer here at the Park District of Franklin Park! We were thrilled to safely offer programs and events with your increased participation! Your support and understanding during this past year is truly appreciated.

Make sure to save the dates for some returning annual events! The 43rd Annual Eddie Biondo Fall Fest Parade will march yet again. We look forward to seeing the neighborhood’s excitement as floats, bands and local groups entertain. Immediately following the parade at North Park will be Pumpkin Fest. Teen Nights are making a comeback for Grades 6-8 and we will even have a Teen Movie Night at Chestnut Park.

Our Afterschool Program is back and ready to provide a safe environment for your students to socialize. Your children receive homework help, exercise and build friendships. Dance & Tumbling programs are a great way to stay active! Our instructors love for dance and teaching is seen in every class.

The newly established Leyden Leagues offer Youth Flag Football, Volleyball and Basketball leagues for Franklin Park and neighboring towns. Each town will field teams and host safe, competitive league play. Our Micro Sports programs are the perfect introduction to sports! Classes teach athletes ages 3-5 the fundamentals of hockey, soccer and basketball.

The Park District of Franklin Park has programs for everyone to enjoy this fall. We hope to see you at our parks enjoying the cool, crisp weather!
