Spring is finally here and we’re getting ready for Summer! We have plenty of activities and events for you and your family to enjoy. 

 Our annual Earth Day Celebration is held outdoors at North Park. We invite you to this free, family-fun event for crafts, games and giveaways. Come learn how to keep our earth clean! 

 Get up and moving with our annual race! The Community Fun Run 5K will race through Franklin Park on May 16. The race starts at North School and will end at North Park where we will celebrate your accomplishments.

 Our Summer Concert Series kicks off on June 9 at North Park’s gazebo. The concerts are held on Tuesday nights. This is a great way to enjoy a night out with your family and meet your neighbors. 

 Purchasing your Pool Pass by May 2 offers a $10 savings. Narwhal Swim Team begins practice on June 1. The program is designed for boys and girls ages 6-18 with a passion for swimming. Register your child today!

 Don’t forget to register your child for one of our award-winning Summer Camps. Keep your children entertained and making friends all summer long! 

 The Park District offers something for everyone to enjoy this Spring and Summer. We can’t wait to see you at our parks and facilities!
