Addison Park District Mission

To provide the highest quality recreational opportunities and open space for everyone.

The Addison Park District was formed in 1969. It grew out of the prior Village of Addison Recreation Commission. When the district was formed, a number of parks were immediately deeded to the park district. These eight original parks consisted of approximately 50 acres. The district currently has 24 park sites encompassing 290 acres. The park district consists of nine square miles and serves a population of approximately 37,000. It employs 28 full-time, 15 part-time and over 250 seasonal staff members.

The district has two major community parks, Community Park on the east side of town and Centennial Park on the west side of town. Centennial Park houses Northeast DuPage Special Recreation Association (NEDSRA) and the District’s newest facility, Club Fitness. Both of these sites have community centers with a gym, meeting rooms, and activity rooms. Community Park also hosts a family aquatic center, as well as, a senior center. The park district also co-owns a gymnasium with Elementary School District #4 at Army Trail School. The Links & Tees Golf Facility on Lake Street features an outdoor practice range, 9 hole golf course, Putter’s Peak adventure mini-golf course, and an indoor golf dome.

The park district is governed by an elected board of five commissioners who serve six year staggered terms. The Board of Commissioners formulates and approves basic policy for the operating control, improvement and planning; future and present, of the park and recreation facilities and activities within the park district. It is the responsibility of the Director and the Administrative staff to carry out these policies and manage the day to day operations of the district.
