Des Plaines Friends of the Parks

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.

Our most important fundraising event each year is the popular Golf in the Dark event at the Lake Park Golf Course.
An evening of fun glow-in-the-dark-golf, with food & drinks, prizes & raffles—all for a great cause!
Plus, it’s a great opportunity for businesses to help sponsor our organization,
and provide much needed scholarship money for Des Plaines youth.
