Our dedicated staff has worked hard throughout 2016 to ensure that Oak Brook Park District continues to provide the “Gold Standard” in recreational opportunities to our community as well as lead the efforts to preserve Oak Brook’s natural resources.


Integral to providing high quality programs and services is being able to understand the needs of our community. I would like to personally thank all of you who completed our Comprehensive Attitude and Interest Survey this past fall. The Oak Brook Park District staff and board is sincerely grateful for your participation as it helps us determine where the park district is succeeding, where we need to improve, and which projects and programs we should focus on in the future. The data derived from this survey truly helps us to provide the very best in park and recreational opportunities for you and your families. Comprehensive results will be available to view at www.obparks.org as soon as they are made available by the University of Illinois.

It is also important that we ensure that all people, regardless of physical ability, have access to the benefits of our amenities. Take a walk through Central Park and you will find three new wheel chair accessible picnic benches along the pathway system. You will also notice an exciting new accessible playground adjacent to Central Park West. The new equipment is designed to allow creative, unstructured recreational play for children of all abilities from ages 5-12.


Lastly, on behalf of all the commissioners, I am very proud to report the successful launch of the several “Green” initiatives here at the Oak Brook Park District. We will continue our commitment to implementing environmentally friendly practices and conservation programming in Oak Brook. • The Oak Brook Park District Dean Nature Sanctuary bees are doing very well and produced more than 80lbs of honey this past year. The apiary was also honored with the Illinois Association of Park Districts (IAPD) Best Green Practices Award!

• New dual-stream (waste and recycling) receptacles have been installed in Central Park to increase our community’s recycling efforts


• The Oak Brook Tennis Center implemented new energy efficient lighting throughout the facility and incorporated motion sensors on the tennis and racquetball courts.


I would like to invite you to get out this season and take advantage of all the recreational opportunities available to you here at the Oak Brook Park District!


Sincerely, Sharon Knitter
