boating on Lake Glenview

The Glenview Park District is excited to provide non-motorized boating access on Lake Glenview. This includes kayaks, canoes and paddle boats. Boating season begins May 1 and ends October 1. Allowing limited boating access will provide residents another way to appreciate and connect with nature in Glenview.

The park district remains committed to being environmentally sensitive. To protect wildlife that resides along the shoreline, only one point of entry and exit will be available. The islands and the south lobe of the lake will be off limits to boaters. The scheduled boating season will not affect the nesting and migration patterns of birds. Do not feed or disturb wildlife, especially breeding or nesting birds or adult animals with young.

  • All boaters are required to purchase a Glenview Park District permit. The application is available at Park Center or it can be downloaded here.
  • Complete and submit the permit application and fee to the Park Center front desk
