Our mission is to enrich the quality of community life through a diversity of healthy leisure pursuits and heightened appreciation for our natural world.
And we've been doing that since 1921, when the citizens of Wheaton established the Wheaton Park District as a separate municipal body. Through acquisition and donation over the decades, the district's residents now enjoy 52 park sites totaling over 800 acres of open space.
We have one of the finest park systems in the state and have been recognized four times during the past 20 years by the National Park & Recreation Association with the National Gold Medal for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management (2005, 1996, 1990, 1984).
Our diverse facilities include:
-Arrowhead Golf Club -Clocktower Commons (mini golf and skate park) -Community Center -Cosley Zoo -DuPage County Historical Museum -Lincoln Marsh Natural Area and Teams Course -Mary Lubko Center (senior citizen center) -Northside Family Aquatic Center -Parks Plus Fitness Center -Rice Pool and Water Park -Safety City/Toohey Park
At the Wheaton Park District, you can always Create. Discover. Play.
