about the glenview park district
The Glenview Park District is one of the largest, most unique and inviting park districts in Illinois. Our property covers over 861 acres which includes 12 major facilities, 26 parks, 13 fieldhouses and 12.6 miles of walking trails. At the Glenview Park District, we manage and preserve our community’s most precious lands that possess both natural and cultural significance. Enjoy time outdoors by hiking, biking, picnicking, and golfing, or learn about our rich history through any of our educational programs.
who is a park district resident?
Property owners or tenants and immediate family members whose primary residence is located within the boundaries of the District.
Commercial or residential individual property owners who contribute financial support to the park district through taxes whether they reside inside or outside the boundaries. A real estate tax bill is verification.
Anyone with a signed purchase contract for a home or signed lease that states they will reside within the boundaries when the program they are registering for begins may participate in the resident lottery for that program.
If you have never registered for a park district program before, you must submit a paper registration form along with a copy of one of the following documents as proof of residency in order to receive resident rates: a house purchase contract or apartment lease, a current utility or real estate tax bill, or a homeowners or rental insurance policy.
In July 1927, the Glenview Park District was formed as a distinct governmental unit with its own mission: to acquire open space for parks and to develop recreational opportunities for the people it serves.
