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 demolition and construction phase to the main floor of the Community Center.  We are always looking for ways to improve our services for you whether it’s the renovations to the Community Center or the construction of an additional locker room at the Ice Arena, we hope we are exceeding your expectations.

This fall, make sure to save the date for some of our favorite events of the year! The Community Fun Run includes three separate races for different age groups so everyone in your family can participate in reaching their fitness goals together. All proceeds from the run goes towards the Parks Foundation, which facilitates sport affiliate & program scholarships to members of the community. 

The 41st Eddie Biondo Fall Fest Parade is sure to entertain with exciting floats and performances from local marching bands. Follow the parade to North Park for our Pumpkin Fest and enjoy an afternoon of face painting, pumpkin painting and more!

Take some time to check out our fall program offerings as well. From Dance & Tumbling and Youth Athletics to Adult Fitness, the Park District offers activities and programs to keep you and your entire family engaged throughout the season.

We’re looking forward to the fall season and hope to see you in the parks!
