Create memories that last a lifetime this summer with the Park Ridge Park District
What a year we’ve all had! When the weather warms and the days are longer, we are all looking to get out and enjoy this great city. Park Ridge has so much to offer, and the Park Ridge Park District is working to bring back all the activities and events we missed so much.
All the aquatic facilities are open this summer, including the Centennial Aquatic Center, Hinkley Pool, Prospect Park Splash Pad, and South Park Wading Pool, and reservations are no longer needed. Staff continues to work on adjusting the pool schedules, and will be releasing schedules in 1-2 week increments throughout the season. Please visit prparks.org prior to visiting.
Special events always draw a crowd in Park Ridge. The Park District is adding more to its July and August schedule, including three summer concerts, two movies in the parks, and two children’s concerts. Details are still being finalized, so visit prparks.org for more information.
