Our park district is doing well, and our staff are working every day to bring limited services to our community. Our goal, like you, is to stay safe, keep you and your family safe and to attempt to provide programs safely. As we work through this difficult time, we continue to communicate with other taxing bodies regularly to coordinate our efforts and keep updated on what is happening in our community. The park district stands by our partners to make our community safe for all. We continue to offer limited programs at our Deer Grove Leisure Center and our fitness center is open for use.

parks remain available for sports practices, biking, walking and other leisure activities. All parks and playgrounds are open. The park district is making plans for 2021 that include all the activities you have become accustomed to, and new things that will offer an outlet for our families as we live through this time. The park district is taking a wait and see position while cautiously looking to the future. Please continue to look to our website and social media for information, as we will post the most current info to these outlets. Additionally, the park district will introduce the Bville Buzz, a new outlet that will update our residents in a fun and progressive way on things going on in the park district. Please stay safe and keep all around you safe. Joseph C. Vallez, Executive Director, Bensenville Park District
