Our Volunteer program is currently paused due to COVID-19.

The Elmhurst Park District’s volunteer program is part of a long tradition of community involvement that assists our organization in achieving our recreational goals. It is the selfless dedication of volunteers to the success of our events, programs and promotions that allows the Elmhurst Park District to enrich lives while having fun. Volunteers perform a variety of tasks each year and span all age groups. Some volunteer on a regular basis for long-term projects, while others assist with short-term activities or special events. All volunteers are invaluable!
