Welcome to Chicago Ridge Park District
It is the policy of the Chicago Ridge Park District to establish, expand and improve park and leisure time opportunities, maintain park properties and facilities in a safe and attractive manner, and strive to obtain available land for future generations.
The Chicago Ridge Park District provides programs and classes for all of our community members, from two year old tots to senior citizens. These activities are designed to be entertaining and enjoyable, as well as educational. Our sports and exercise activities also provide physical benefits.
Don’t delay! We need a minimum number of registrants to avoid cancellation!

Spring / Summer / Fall / Winter
Spring brings everything, from baseball to the Easter Bunny, and our spring events and trips include much more! Compete in the MLB Pitch Hit and Run Tournament, join the Easter Bunny for breakfast, explore Navy Pier with us…we have so much in store for the spring season!
It’s festival season! If we’re not headed to Long Grove for the Strawberry Festival, then we’re making our way to the Eyes in the Sky Festival to see the hot air balloons! Come along as we explore places like Starved Rock and the Morton Arboretum, and go shopping in Gurnee Mills! So much to do, so little time!
Holiday events are our specialty! Celebrate Halloween with us at our Halloween at the Park event, compete for a turkey at our Annual Turkey Shoot, and meet Santa Claus for breakfast before your Santa Express train trip! Ever see Brookfield Zoo’s Holiday Magic Nights? We’ll take you there!
Winter is great time to explore wonders indoors, like the Shedd Aquarium’s 32,500 different animals, or the Chicago History Museum’s amazing showcase of historical artifacts of Chicago and the United States. It’s also the season we get to see Disney on Ice and host our most popular event of all, Daddy Daughter Date Night!MORE EVENTS
