This summer the Park District of Franklin Park was limited in programs we could offer. We thank you for understanding as our community, state and nation navigates during this unprecedented time. It is our goal to offer recreation opportunities that spread positivity. We will continue to safely offer as many programs as we can under the state’s guidelines.

Mark your calendar to save the dates for your favorite fall events. Special events will be a little different this year as staff is preparing the safest options possible. Stay tuned for announcements on Pumpkin Fest and Halloween Hoot!

We have plenty of programs for you and your family to stay active. We offer a variety of Dance and Tumbling programs for ages 4-12. Any adults looking for a high-energy class should try one of our Adult Fitness programs.

We are excited for our partnership with Franklin Park School District 84 to offer a Remote Learning Day Camp. D84 students in Grades 2-8 can enroll in camp and conduct their e-learning at our North Park facility. Counselors will be on hand to assist. Once assignments are completed, we will have activities for students to enjoy.

Please visit our website the most up to date information and COVID-19 guidelines. Masks are required for entering facilities and programs when social distancing is not possible. We hope to see you at our parks enjoying the cool, crisp fall weather!
