This year, the Elmhurst Park District is mapping its future by updating its comprehensive and strategic plan. Part of this process is hearing from the whole community, including those who are not active users of its facilities and programs.
Earlier this year, the Park District launched its Elevate Elmhurst Parks website, where the community can share feedback about parks, programs, facilities and more. This website now features a survey that non-Park District users are invited to take.
Hearing from non-users ensures that the Park District’s offerings reflect the whole community’s priorities for parks and recreation. The survey gives the Park District the opportunity to learn about participation barriers some community members may face. The collected feedback will also provide insight into possible gaps in programming and special events currently being offered.
