District's Vision 2020 plan wins award

A strategic plan is essential to the success of any organization. It drives long-range planning, directs decision-making, and assists with allocating resources. And in the case of the Elmhurst Park District, it can also be award-winning!

In 2016, the Board of Park Commissioners and staff set out to update the District’s Comprehensive and Strategic Plans. The project was dubbed “Vision 2020” as a nod to the District’s approaching 100th anniversary in the year 2020 and as a reference to “20/20”, having a clear vision of what’s in front of you.

Keeping safe while having fun

Spring and summer are the perfect time to go out and enjoy the parks, especially the playgrounds! At playgrounds kids socialize, develop motor skills and burn off energy while having fun!

The importance of playgrounds is clear to the Park District, which means maintaining them as safe play environments is a priority. Park District employees inspect each of our playgrounds weekly while a CPSI (Certified Playground Safety Inspector) employee inspects the playgrounds once a month.
