President’s Letter

Greetings from your New Lenox Community Park District!

I’m sure you’re as eager as I am for the arrival of summer! As always, the Recreation Department is dedicated to providing an incredible summer experience for you and your family. From a variety of summer camps to numerous programs, we have everything you need to step out of the house. Join us for some family-friendly fun at one of our free events, like The Kids Fishing Derby, Park Parties, or our new Ice Cream Social! For ages 8 to 12, bring your competitive spirit to the Tween Sunset Summer Games. Don’t miss out on our year-round Adult Programs and our participation in the Six County Senior Games 2024 – visit the IPRA Six County Senior Games for more information!

This summer, tee off in style at our state-of-the-art Driving Range featuring Toptracer technology. Your golfing skills are about to reach new heights. Visit for all the exciting details.

Our Parks Maintenance Department is dedicated to maintaining your parks and athletic sites, ensuring they are clean, safe, and accessible to everyone. They are constantly upgrading older shelters, replacing site furniture, and seal coating walking paths and parking lots.

July has been officially designated as Parks and Recreation Month by the U.S. House of Representatives. To honor this, we are hosting the Grand Opening of Hibernia Park Phase II on July 25. Celebrate the month by visiting our parks and joining us at our various events!

Exciting Update – Construction for Water Chase Park will begin this summer. This project, with a budget of over $1.2 million, will be supported by an OSLAD grant and the New Lenox Community Park District. The development of Water Chase Park will include a pavilion, innovative play area, wiffle ball field, pickleball courts, and walking/running paths. We are delighted to enhance recreational options for people of all ages.

In conclusion, we are delighted to see our upcoming park projects come to life. We are eager to continue to improve the parks and recreation facilities for the New Lenox Community!

Warm regards,

Ted Schulz
Park Board President
