July is Park & Recreation Month

Fri July 2, 2021

July is Park & Recreation Month! Our local parks are often our first experiences in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life's special moments, spots of respite and healing, sites that connect us with essential community services and so much more.

In honor of Park & Recreation Month and to help celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Downers Grove Park District, we are asking YOU to share your special parks and recreation stories. If you are interested in sharing your favorite memories of participating in DGPD programs, visiting parks or playgrounds or experiencing special events and more, please complete the "Our Park & Recreation Story" form. Responses may be shared on social media throughout the coming year as we honor the history of the Downers Grove Park District.
