About the New Lenox Community Park District

The New Lenox Community Park District, located in Will County, Illinois, which serves both the Village of New Lenox and New Lenox Township, offers a wide variety of services to both residents and nonresidents. Some of the services offered are recreational programs, walking trails, fishing, parks, party rentals and golf.

President’s Letter

As this year comes to a close, I reflect on not only what challenges this year has brought the Park District but the hard work and dedication our Staff has for providing the best program and services to our community. With every new change in the guidelines, the Park District staff has worked diligently to ensure a safe and healthy implementation of programs.

That being said, your Park District and Sanctuary Golf Course Staff are ready for a fresh new year with fun programs and events for the New Lenox residents. The cold winter is quickly approaching, and the Park District staff began winterizing the splash pads, fields and parks. But no need to worry, again this year, patrons will be able to enjoy the winter landscape at Hibernia Park as they walk or run around the 0.57-mile trail. At times, path may not be plowed or cleared of any snow or ice. Please note that the path will not be salted and to proceed with caution. Also, how could I forget to mention that the Park District was awarded a National Fitness Campaign Grant that will bring a whole new level of fitness opportunities to the Lincoln-Way Area! We are excited to announce that this fitness court is slated to begin construction this Spring.

For those of you looking for some holiday fun, grab your ice skates or rent some at Christmas in the Commons beginning Saturday, December 5 at 4:00pm! The Ice Rink will be open every day starting December 5 through January 4. Please be sure to visit our website to find skate rentals and hours. As always, we thank all our local sponsors for supporting the Ice Rink for the community members to enjoy.

So, what’s new for Recreation Department? As usual, we will be offering a large selection of programs during the upcoming winter months including some Zoom and Esport options. But I want to highlight a great asset that all our Park District participants can use – our “Monthly Newsletter”. This Newsletter, which will be emailed in the beginning of the month, will contain items such as: upcoming special events and programs, reminders of important dates such as registration sign-up and times and ways to thank our local sponsors. To sign up for the newsletter, visit newlenoxparks.org, and on the lower right-hand side of the home page there is a section where you can click to join the mailing list.

Your Parks Maintenance Department has been busy keeping your neighborhood parks beautiful and exceptionally clean. From the regular upkeep to installing updates, they are consistently hard at work to improve your park experience. In fact, they are almost finished with Leigh Creek South Park and are in the planning stages of Sky Harbor Park.

In closing, I speak for myself and my fellow commissioners when I say thank you to the entire staff at the New Lenox Community Park District. Every day they go above and beyond for the residents of New Lenox. We look forward to providing quality programs to the community!

Ted Schulz
Park Board President
