Dear Residents…


Thank you to everyone that joined us this Summer at the Park District of Franklin Park events and programs. Whether it was splashing  around at the Pool on Pacific or running around in camp, thank you!

As we move on to cooler weather, we are ushering in our wonderful Fall Annual events. This year, the Park District of Franklin Park is teaming up with District 84 to bring you the Parks Foundation 5K! The new 5K also includes a smaller 3K race as well as a mile for the little ones! Challenge yourself to reach your fitness goals and bring along the entire family too!

Make sure to join us for the 40th Eddie Biondo Fall Fest Parade and Pumpkin Fest for a beautiful Fall day filled with fun.

The After-School Program gives kids a fun and safe place to hangout after school and also encourages them to get homework  done. For the athletes in your family, check out Youth Basketball and Floor Hockey! Even the little ones can get in on the fun at one of our variety of Tot classes .

Take some time to enjoy the cool, crisp Fall weather at our newly renovated Maple Park! Maple Park features a retro theme with a merry-go-round, a dome climber, and a rocket ship slide!\

We hope to see you in the parks!
