President’s Letter

I don’t know about you, but I am ready to bring on warm weather and get back out to our parks!

As always, the Recreation Department is ensuring a great and safe summer for you and your family! From the many summer camps to the hundreds of program and events, we have what you are looking for! Be sure to check out some new events like Bake Me Crazy, Under the Sea Stuffed with Love Party, and Kids in the Garden. We continue to offer fun, activities for our tweens like our Tween Bonfire and Bags Night, Trail Time Thursday and our Tween Float Trip down the DuPage River. Along with our year-round Adult Programs, we will be taking part in the Six County Senior Games 2022, visit the IPRA Six County Senior Games for more details!

The Sanctuary will be offering a variety of golf lessons and programs to fit all skill levels. Junior golf rates will be offered during the weekdays for the juniors to be able to get on the course at a discounted rate, just book their tee time and have them check in at the golf shop upon arrival. Be sure to check out our senior specials and events we are offering this Summer. Visit golfsanctuary.com for information on rates, lessons, leagues and more.

Your Parks Maintenance Department has been busy keeping your neighborhood parks beautiful and clean. They are consistently hard at work to improve your park experience as well as help the participants of our New Lenox Athletic Associations have amazing parks to compete and practice. Our Sky Harbor Park is targeted for completion June 1. The key features of the park will include: 2 tennis/pickle ball courts, 2 fitness challenge courses, playground equipment and a walking path. Another exciting renovation is occurring at the Disc golf course at Haines Park. Tree and brush clearing has been completed. New concrete tee boxes will be installed along with new baskets this spring, just in time for summer!

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. They continue to strive in providing quality programming, parks and services to the community. We look forward to enhancing those experiences for you and your family this summer!

Sincerely,
Ted Schulz
Park Board President
