Dear Residents…

This summer was a busy one for us here at the Park District of Franklin Park. We thank you for your patience during the renovation of the main floor at the Community Center. We are always looking for ways to improve our facilities and services. We hope you all are excited to see the finished project.

Make sure to save the dates for some of our favorite fall events. The 42nd Annual Eddie Biondo Fall Fest Parade is sure to entertain the neighborhood with exciting floats and local marching bands. Follow the parade to North Park for our Pumpkin Fest and enjoy an afternoon of face painting, pumpkin carving and more!

We are offering plenty of programs this fall for you and your families. From Dance & Tumbling and Youth Athletics to Adult Fitness, the Park District helps everyone stay active. Our newest program Dance Fitness combines yoga, pilates, jazz and ballet inspired moves.

Our Afterschool Program gives kids a fun, safe environment to socialize and build friendships. Our staff encourages students to interact as a group and work on homework. Parents will be pleased to know we are now offering a Days Off Camp for when your students are off from school. This is a great opportunity to keep children engaged on their day off.

We hope to see you at our parks enjoying the cool, crisp fall weather!
