Your Park District

Dear Residents and Park District Friends:

The weather may be getting colder outside, but the Park District of Franklin Park has plenty of programs for you to enjoy. It was great seeing so many residents and families at our parks this fall. We look forward to providing you with quality and safe recreational programs and events in the new year.

Start your New Year’s resolution by becoming a Fitness Center member. We offer affordable memberships to improve your health and wellness. Our North Park facility also offers Group Fitness programs that are perfect for any fitness level.

Dads and daughters can spend a special night together at the annual Daddy Daughter Dance. This memorable evening includes dinner, dancing, photos and more. The Easter Bunny is attending all three of our Easter events. Make sure you bring your camera!

There are plenty of activities to keep your children active this winter. Dance and Tumbling classes prepare all session long for their annual Dance Recital. You and your little ones can spend creative time together in our Early Childhood programs.

The Leyden Youth Basketball League is ready to tip off another season. Players practice during the week to improve fundamentals and play games on Saturdays. The Leyden Leagues are an opportunity for everyone to play!

We encourage you to contact us with any questions you might have. We hope to see you at our events and facilities this season!

Park District Information

Am I a Resident or Non-Resident of the Park District of Franklin Park?

You are a Resident of the Park District if you live within Park District boundaries (that is, in Franklin Park, north of Grand Avenue). You are a Non-Resident if you reside outside that area. All are welcome to participate in our programs; however, Non-Residents are sometimes charged a slightly higher fee. In this brochure, “R” indicates a Resident fee, while “NR” indicates a Non-Resident fee.

Resident Pass

Park District Residents are required to get a Resident Pass to receive discounted rates on programs, events, passes and rentals. To get your pass, bring a valid driver’s license or state ID and a current property tax or utility bill showing your name and address to the Community Center. Children must also obtain a pass. Parents/guardians must provide a copy of each child’s birth certificate or guardian papers. The pass serves as proof of residency and is good for one year. Replacement passes are $6.

Code of Conduct/ Participant Guidelines

Equal Access

No participant shall, on the basis of race, sex, creed, national origin or disability, be denied equal access to programs, activities, services or benefits, or be limited in the exercise of any right, privilege, advantage or opportunity.

Behavior

Participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. The following guidelines have been developed to make Park District programs safe and enjoyable for all participants. Additional rules may be developed for particular programs and athletic leagues as deemed necessary by staff. Participants shall:

• Show respect to all participants and staff

• Refrain from using foul language

• Refrain from causing bodily harm to other participants and staff

• Show respect for equipment, supplies and facilities

Discipline

A positive approach will be used regarding discipline. The Park District of Franklin Park reserves the right to dismiss a participant. Each situation will be evaluated on its own merit.

Youth Participation Guidelines

From time to time, the Park District has had the challenge of dealing with children registered for Park District programs whose excitement level and enthusiasm were beyond the capabilities of our staff. In the event that such a child is involved in any of these programs, the staff will notify the child’s parents that they are not capable of adequately supervising such a child. The Park District will gladly refund the pro-rated portion of any fees. The Park District has made every effort to hire capable staff for all programs, but there are occasions when, for the good of the entire program, the Park District must insist that parents remove unmanageable children from the program. Your cooperation as a parent will be greatly appreciated, and your understanding will allow the Park District of Franklin Park to better serve all youth.

We Love Parents, but…

With your child’s best interest in mind, we ask that parents do not remain in class, or bring other children into class during any of our youth programs, unless specifically approved by the instructor. This may interrupt the participant’s attention and inhibit the establishment of peer relationships. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Oops!

The Park District staff has made every effort to prepare this brochure as accurately as possible. However, errors can occur. Circumstances may require that adjustments be made to programs, fees, schedules, etc. The Park District reserves the right to make any such adjustments. The Park District apologizes for any inconvenience these errors or adjustments may cause.

Lost and Stolen Policy

Personal items brought to the Park District of Franklin Park facilities are the responsibility of the individual. We recommend that items be secured in lockers when provided at facilities. The Park District does not maintain a lost and found, and cannot accept responsibility for items left at Park District facilities, fields or parks.
