The weather may be getting colder outside, but the Park District of Franklin Park has plenty of programs for you to enjoy. It was great seeing so many residents and families at our parks this year. We look forward to providing you with exciting recreational programs and events in the new year! 

Start your New Year’s resolution by becoming a Fitness Center member. We offer affordable memberships to improve your health and wellness. Our North Park facility also offers Adult Fitness programs that are perfect for any fitness level. 

Dads and daughters can spend a special night together at the annual Daddy Daughter Dance. This memorable evening includes dinner, dancing, photos and more. The Easter Bunny is attending all three of our Easter events. Make sure you bring your camera! 

There are plenty of activities to keep your children active this winter. Dance and Tumbling classes prepare all session long for their annual Dance Recital. You and your little ones can spend creative time together in our Early Childhood programs. 

The Leyden Youth Basketball League is ready to tip off another season. Players practice during the week to improve fundamentals and play games on Saturdays. The Leyden Leagues are an opportunity for everyone to play! 

We encourage you to contact us with any questions you might have. We hope to see you at our events and facilities this season!
