Tim Skladzien is the new Program & Aquatics Manager for the Park District of Franklin Park. He oversees all Aquatic programs, Special Events and Youth Dance programming. He graduated from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Communications and Master’s degree in Professional Leadership.
Tim grew up in Kildeer, Illinois. Swimming is a priority for his fitness and he swam competitively from preschool through college with community, USA Swimming, high school, and college teams. He started in the recreation field five years ago at the Foglia YMCA where he worked in Customer Service and in Aquatics as a Lifeguard, Lifeguard Instructor, and Swim Instructor. Tim has held positions at Park Districts throughout Chicagoland in the area of aquatics, facility management and special events. He is also a certified aqua aerobics instructor.
Outside of work, Tim loves to challenge himself to swim long distances in either a pool, lake or ocean. He considers himself to be a “kid at heart”. He is a huge Disney Fan, whether it be visiting Disney World, watching Disney movies or dressing up as a character for a special event. Tim also enjoys camping, hiking, biking and spending time with friends and family, especially his nieces in Wisconsin.
Tim is looking forward to meeting Franklin Park’s residents! His goal is to create quality aquatic programming as well as new events and programs for years to come!
