Parks & Recreation Department

Welcome to South Elgin Parks & Recreation!
Our Mission Statement is dedicated to the administration and operation of parks, programs, open space, and recreational facilities that enhance the quality of life for residents and guests of the Village.
Through our vision statement, the Parks & Recreation Department strives to serve South Elgin through parks, programs, and open space. Our goal is to increase community pride by providing safe places to play, protect the environment, and provide fun. We focus on giving people activities that harbor a feeling of greatness and happiness, increase self-esteem, and extend the longevity of their lives. The parks and programs provided by the Department look to build family unity and create lifelong memories. At the end of every program, special event, and park visit our goal is to enrich a community sense of awareness and appreciation of leisure.
