Des Plaines Park District

Des Plaines Friends of the Parks Foundation


The Des Plaines Friends of the Parks is a volunteer organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the youth of Des Plaines. We sponsor a number of fun events throughout the year, and provide scholarships for participation in Des Plaines Park District programs.

We are always looking for new members and volunteers to support our efforts. If you love Des Plaines as much as we do, considering being a part of this important community organization.
