Share Your Ideas. Be Heard.

Release Date: Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Re|creation is Glencoe Park District's community-based comprehensive planning process. This site is your portal to discuss ideas about improving your parks, programs, & facilities! Glencoe Park District's leaders are using Re|creation to formulate the District's ten-year Master Plan. 

For example, we like to think our parks are the best in Chicagoland, but we know there is always room for improvement! Is there something we don't have that you'd like to see added to our district? Did you recently fall in love with playing pickle ball and would like to see a court added to our parks? Or what about a place to take that canine friend of yours to play? Use Re|creation to pin where you want your new amenity added and tell us a little about how this new amenity would make our district better!

Real-Time Registration Starts April 9

Release Date: Monday, March 17, 2014

Real-Time Registration for Spring/Summer programs will start at 6:30 AM on Wednesday, April 9. Real-Time Registration allows you to register for programs on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Instead of waiting for the program lottery, your registration will be confirmed immediately. 

Online registration is the BEST way to ensure your spot. It is also the fastest and most convenient way to register. However, you can still register in person, by mail, or by fax.  

In order to ensure your spot in our spring/summer programs, we suggest you set up your household account immediately. That way, on April 9, you can log in, click on the class you want, submit your registration payment, and receive confirmation immediately. 

If you have any questions, call us at (847) 835-3030.
