Please join the Chicago Park District as we thank and honor volunteers who have helped support their parks! Over the past few years, the Chicago Park District has relied on volunteers to help keep their parks clean, plant and maintain gardens, manage dog-friendly areas, coach sports, provide programming, steward our natural areas, serve on Park Advisory Councils, and more. We cannot thank you enough for your commitment and dedication to Chicago’s parks.

On October 1, please join us at the historic South Shore Cultural Center as we celebrate your energy and dedication with a fun-filled event honoring you! 

You and your family are invited for a family-friendly day with culture, nature, kid-friendly activities, food, and merriment!
