The mission of the Geneva Park District is to provide recreational programs, facilities, and open space that will enhance the quality of life for residents of all age groups and abilities.
Established in 1953, the Geneva Park District began with four parks: Wheeler, Dryden, Island and McKinley Park. From four parks and a small number of athletic programs, the district has grown to 50 parks, occupying more than 700 acres and 3,000 recreation programs offered annually.
During the span of more than 50 years, the Park District has made great strides in meeting the needs of a growing community.
The district has constructed bike/pedestrian trails, playgrounds and parks, athletic fields, an outdoor aquatic center & water spray ground, a community center, a recreation center, two fitness centers, a skate park and a disc golf course as well as acquired many acres of open space.
The Park District has 40,000 program participants and more than 200,000 visitors to their facilities. The district offers various programs, which include preschool, a before & after school program, arts and crafts, trips, special events, athletics, dance, martial arts, gymnastics, tumbling, camps, toddler, youth, and adult programs.
