Our Mission

A message from our Executive Director…

Enrich our community with fun, diverse and safe park and recreation experiences through environmentally and fiscally responsible actions.

Dear Residents,

Board of Trustees Chuck Anderson President Holly Scholz Vice-President Alex Alexandrou Commissioner Jerry Butler Commissioner Mary Anne Cummings Commissioner Matt Hicks Commissioner Cynthia Penne Commissioner

The power of parks never ceases to amaze me. Case in point – our current front cover of this activity guide. While we’re always doing our best to deliver new events and programs, it’s an image like this that reminds me what it’s truly all about. We help create quality of life through stewardship of your parks and open spaces. Fox Valley Park District simply provides the canvas for you to paint your own picture of recreation and wellness. Our front cover is merely one vignette which demonstrates the lifetime memories that can be created in one simple moment. In addition to the feel-good side of Parks and Recreation, there’s the practical value delivered to local citizens. Parks, trails and playgrounds are 3 of the top 5 community amenities looked at

serves to enhance property values and bolster local economies. Perhaps even more important are the health benefits provided by your parks system. Parks are an excellent place to get fit, reduce stress and enjoy leisure pursuits. They also serve an important role in controlling pollution and conserving ecosystems with clean air and water.

Fitness Programs KIDS FITNESS INITIATIVES  FIT FOR KIDS

The Fox Valley Park District is taking a leading role in the battle against childhood obesity. Teaching children the importance of exercise and nutrition provides them a solid foundation for a healthy future. In partnership with local agencies, the District helped create the “Making Kane County Fit for Kids” campaign. A major component of this campaign is the “Fit Kids 2020 Plan,” which provides guidelines, strategies and action steps to put children on a path toward healthy living. The plan includes initiatives and ideas that communities and residents can apply to a common goal. By working together, we create an environment where children make smart lifestyle choices that are beneficial toward their long-term health and well-being. For more information, visit makingkanefitforkids.org.

WORKING IT OUT TOGETHER

This program encourages kids and parents to work out together and develop a healthy lifestyle. Equipment will be set aside to allow children to work out with their parents. All children under the age of 14 are required to complete an equipment orientation prior to utilizing the fitness floor. Call the Vaughan or Eola Fitness Desk to set up an appointment. (BM) (JN)

Gymnastics for Preschoolers! Success for Body and Mind! Did you know that putting your preschooler in gymnastics is one of the best things you can do for their education? Studies show that children learn cognitive skills more effectively in an environment that includes the body as well as the mind. Gymnastics and early childhood movement education is directly related to developing neurological pathways in students and promoting reading readiness. Children who have participated in movement education activities have longer attention spans, increased communication, problem solving skills, and improved self-esteem. (Researchers at the Robert Wood Medical School)

Celebrate your birthday swinging and bouncing in the gymnastics center. Parties are offered on Saturdays and Sundays. All parties include 45 minutes of ageappropriate organized activities and 45 minutes of room rental for food and gifts. See page 9 for details.

Volunteer Spotlight

Today, at age 27, basketball has taken second seat to her career as an electrical engineer at the LaSalle County generating station. But the sport remains an important part of her life; something she now imparts on others. As a volunteer coach in the 12-14 age division at Eola, Lauren is sharing her lifetime of basketball wisdom with the next generation, and her passion is more than just teaching the basics and fundamentals. “Basketball taught me so many life lessons that went beyond the games and practices,” said Lauren. “Volunteering is one way I can give back and help my community the way they helped me when I was growing up.” Lauren is unique to this year’s league in that she is the only coach who doesn’t have a son, daughter or relative playing. “It’s a way to fulfill my athletic interest,” said Lauren, whose younger brother Jared – who also came up through the Eola Youth League ranks – plays professionally in Italy. With all her playing experience, Lauren has had lots of coaches, giving her the ability to choose the best attributes of every coach to apply to her coaching. “I try to not go too hard on the kids,” said Lauren, “because this is a rec league and I want them to enjoy the game. What I try to do is instill a sense of discipline and responsibility with the physical aspects of the game and mesh all those things together. “I’m different from most coaches. The won/lost record is important, but what I enjoy most is seeing players improve on what we’ve worked on. To see that progression is very rewarding.”

Outdoor Facilities FISHING LAKES AND BOAT RAMPS

TRAILS

The district has a variety of fishing lakes for some relaxing fun. To ensure long-term, quality fishing at its lakes, the Fox Valley Park District has a cooperative management agreement with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources that is intended to develop healthy eco-systems and improve fishing quality. Rather than stock and re-stock regularly, the lakes management program creates a fishery that is self-sustaining. The payoffs for fishermen are greater catch rates and bigger fish.

The park district features more than 48 miles of premier regional trails (trailheads with parking listed below). Trail maps are located on the “Park and Trails” tab at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org.

Printable contour maps of select lakes are available online at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org. The maps feature lake depths and shoreline features, along with specific information on fish species, average numbers and sizes, and creel limits. Fishing lakes with off-street parking include: •  Foxcroft Lake: Elder and Birch in Aurora •  Jericho Lake: Jericho Road in Aurora •  Lake Gregory/Blackberry Farm (free with paid admission and valid fishing license weekdays only May 1 to Aug. 31): 100 S.
