Glen Ellyn Park District

185 Spring Avenue

The Glen Ellyn Park District was established on November 3, 1919 as an independent governmental agency. Since that time numerous facilities and open space have been added to Park District holdings to meet the growing needs of our community.

The Glen Ellyn Park District's year is divided into three seasons: Fall, Winter, and Spring & Summer providing over 400 programs year round servicing infants to seniors populations. Each brochure highlights a wealth of programs and special events for all age groups and interests. Seasonal events such as Lunch with the Bunny, Breakfast with Santa, Polar Express, Lake Ellyn Family Camping and the Annual Fishing Derby are just a few of the cornerstones of recreation programming your Park District offers you and your family.

Glen Ellyn Park District's twenty-nine parks are meticulously maintained for the community's use in both unstructured recreation and for programmed events such as Youth Soccer and Softball. The district operates 1 outdoor aquatic facility, four recreation buildings, 23 multipurpose parks and playgrounds and two lakes. Five playgrounds were renovated in 1996 & 1997 including the Main Street Recreation Center, Glen Ellyn Manor, Co-Op Park, Ackerman Park and Panfish Park. Several more playgrounds are scheduled to be renovated in the next three years. The Park District renovated the Forest Preserve building at Rte. 53 and Spring Ave. in 2000. The Spring Avenue Recreation Center renovation has provided additional space for recreation programming and a new home for administrative offices
