In 2015 the Elgin Parks Department was re-created to better cater to the community's needs. The different divisions of the Parks Department add to the quality of life in our community by maintaining parks and green spaces. We plan and implement various programs for all ages and teach Elgin residents about the unique resources around them. From maintaining nearly 120 aces of parkland to providing more than 45 events for all demographics, our staff strives to bring Elgin together 365 days a year.
The Parks Department is responsible for:

Since 1985, people in the United States have celebrated Park and Recreation Month in July to promote building strong, vibrant and resilient communities through the power of parks and recreation and to recognize the more than 160,000 full-time park and recreation professionals — along with hundreds of thousands of part-time and seasonal workers and volunteers — that maintain our country’s local, state and community parks.
The services that park and recreation professionals provide are vital for our communities — from protecting open space and natural resources to helping fight obesity and providing activities and resources for all people. Park and Recreation Month encourages everyone to reflect on the exponential value park and recreation professionals bring to communities.
Check out the celebrations scheduled for every Friday in July hosted by Elgin Parks & Recreation!
