Sycamore Park District

The Park District, established in 1923, is in the process of acquiring and developing a number of park sites and open spaces to serve a growing community. Park sites including; neighborhood parks, community parks, athletic fields, wetlands, woodlands, and high-quality natural areas.

In total, our Park District owns or manages hundreds of existing acres of park land where you and your neighbors can enjoy leisurely walks, running, bicycling, golfing, picnicking, fishing, skating, soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, tennis, swimming, and plans to develop other sites that have been recently acquired as our resources permit.

Additionally, experience the joy of learning and sharing along with the thrill of adventure and discovery. People of all ages are encouraged to enjoy their local parks and participate in a variety of social and educational programs.

Opportunities include spending quality time with family and friends, being creative with arts and crafts, wandering the wetlands and prairies, visiting unique places on trips, competing in sports, joining a fitness class or educational program, golfing, and/or exploring the wonders nature provides. We are growing and proud to be part of Sycamore, where we want life to offer much more!
