G R AY S L A K E PA R K D I S T R I C T “These programs are going gangbusters,” Nehila said. Enrollment in youth sports programming has also skyrocketed. Their travel programs in softball, volleyball and basketball, for both boys and girls, has become a very popular choice for children in the region because of its reputation as an affordable and reputable program, Nehila said. The nine-hole, par-3 golf course is another popular offering. “I like to say that when you play our course, you get nine shots at a hole-in-one every time you play,” he said. Nehila said more outings and events are being booked for the course every season including “best ball” tournaments and regular leagues. The park district is also bringing the facility to the attention of the public by planning special events which attract distinct
constituencies. For instance, an evening of golf, followed by wine sampling at the clubhouse, is an appealing event to many. Special events around the GPD’s 33 parks abound throughout the year. This year the park district held its second annual George Weinert Fishing Derby in memory of a dedicated park district commissioner who passed away. In addition, they periodically hold movies in the park and in late June annually hold their one-day Family Picnic featuring carnival rides, bands, food and fireworks. “It is never a bad time to get out and enjoy our local parks and programs,” he added.
