Welcome to the Chicago Park District

Founded in 1934, the Chicago Park District is one of the largest municipal park managers in the nation and owner of more than 8,100 acres of green space.  We invite you to take in a concert or a movie at one of our 580 parks, or to expand your horizons by registering for one of our thousands of programs offered throughout our 260 field houses.

As the leading provider of recreation and leisure opportunities in the city of Chicago, you can also get a great workout indoors at one of our 71 state-of-the-art fitness centers, or outdoors along Lake Michigan’s 26 miles of pristine lakefront.  If you’re a nature lover, enjoy a peaceful visit at one our 16 historic lagoons or nearly 50 natural areas.  For culture vultures, we house 10 museums and two world-class conservatories among our inventory of inviting and beautifully maintained facilities.

Each year, the Chicago Park District’s Board of Commissioners, general superintendent and CEO and nearly 3,000 dedicated employees work together to deliver thousands of special events as well as cultural, environmental, and recreational programs in our citywide parks.  We invite you to join us as we continue to create a customer-focused and responsive park system.
