The Chicago Park District Office of Budget and Management is responsible for the oversight and coordination of the annual operating budget, inviting public input related to the recommended budget, and submitting the budget for adoption by the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners. As part of the budget process, the District hosts forums for the public to provide input related to the budget. In addition, a Public Hearing on the recommended budget is held where the Superintendent presents the recommended budget to the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners votes on adoption of the Annual Budget Appropriation at a monthly Board meeting. Throughout this process, the District welcomes public feedback and ideas online through the Budget Ideas Submission form below.

The budget process begins each year in August. Check back then for dates and additional information.
