The Des Plaines Park District is governed by a five-member volunteer Board of Commissioners who are elected at-large for six-year terms. Terms are staggered to provide continuity. The board is responsible for the development of Park District policies, long range planning, and monthly review of Park District Financial and Operations Reports. In addition, they hire and maintain oversight of the Executive Director. The day-to-day operations of the Park District are the responsibility of the staff.
