Facility and Park Improvements

The Park District has a Five-Year Capital replacement plan that serves to guide the Park Board in prioritizing projects based on the financial impact to the budget. Community members, staff and the Park Board suggest improvements. Many facility enhancements are possible due to the aggressive approach the District takes to seeking grants to offset the costs of improvements. Costs are reduced further by utilizing our staff to complete many of the project tasks. These improvements update our facilities, provide for accessibility, reduce our energy consumption as well as beautify our parks.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and when errors do occur, our staff will advise you of the change as quickly as possible. The most current catalog copy, with updates, will always be posted on our website, rmparks.org. (bottom left corner).

Residents & Non-Residents

The Rolling Meadows Park District is a separate, tax supported agency apart from the City of Rolling Meadows. This means that you may have a City of Rolling Meadows address but do not pay taxes to the Rolling Meadows Park District. Therefore, all participants that are non-taxpaying residents of the park district are required to pay an additional fee depending on the program. Non-Residents are welcome to join any Rolling Meadows Park District program. A quick way to determine your park district resident status is to look at your tax bill; the park district that you pay taxes to will be listed.

Community Agreements

We are fortunate to have intergovernmental agreements with School District 15 and 214 and St. Colette for usage of their indoor and outdoor spaces.

Thank You Volunteers!
