The Wood Dale Park District offers diverse parks and recreation opportunities throughout the community. With 139 acres of land, 15 park sites and facilities, and seasonal offerings for all ages, we could not do what we do without the energy and support from Park District volunteers.

The Wood Dale Park District’s mission is to serve the community with quality recreational experiences that provide a fun and healthy lifestyle. Much of what the district provides would not be possible with tax dollars alone. Private help and strong partnerships are essential if we are to continue to enhance our recreation and parks system. For more information, contact the Executive Director with donation inquiries. (Link email)

Partnership Program

The Wood Dale Park District establishes partnerships with many civic organizations and businesses both in and outside of our community. These partnerships provide additional financial, in-kind, or volunteer resources allowing us to continue to meet the needs of the community. While we provide services and programs directly to the community, we support the efforts of these partners and work in collaboration so that we support local business and provide quality programs for you and your family.

Since 1967, the Wood Dale Park District has been provided recreation and leisure activities for families, adults, youth, and senior populations in Arlington Heights.

Your company or organization can benefit by partnering with the Park District as we market our programs and services to the community.
