From Tony LaFrenere, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Your Schaumburg Park District is 50 years old! And, as my first year as executive director of this fantastic agency comes to a close, I’m proud to reflect on the benefits the Schaumburg Park District provided in FY 201213, and our focused vision for the future. I’m fortunate to know the District’s programs, facilities and events from several perspectives. I grew up here, and now am raising my own family in the community. As director, I quickly realized the quality of the programs and facilities is driven by my educated, innovative and dedicated co-workers. The staff is passionate about what they do, and the people they serve. Your District has great leadership in your elected officials. They are committed to providing excellent service in a framework of integrity and transparency. Together, we reinforce the District’s mission to serve you by providing enriching opportunities, quality facilities and environmental stewardship. I’m reminded every day of the importance of parks and recreation to our quality of life. Although national in scope, I believe in local application of the accompanying “Top 10” list of parks and recreation values, and hope you see them in action each time you walk through a park, work out at a fitness facility, attend an event, or in any way join the Schaumburg Park District to Take Time for Fun!

6. Leisure activities in parks improve moods, reduce stress and enhance a sense of wellness. 7. Recreational programs provide organized, structured, enjoyable activities for all ages. 8. Community recreation services provide a refuge of safety for at-risk youth. 9. Therapeutic recreation is an outlet for individuals with disabilities to be physically active, socially engaged and cognitively stimulated. 10. Public parks embody the American tradition of preserving public lands for the benefit and use of all.
