Our Mission

Glen Ellyn Park District is driven to foster diverse, community-based leisure opportunities, through a harmonious blend of quality recreation programs, facilities and open space, which will enhance the quality of life into the future.

Welcome To The Glen Ellyn Park District

On behalf of the Board of Commissioners and staff, I would like to welcome you to the Glen Ellyn Park District’s team. We believe you will find your volunteer assignment to be fun and rewarding.

The quality of Park District programs is directly affected by the performance of every volunteer. The Park District has approximately 400 volunteers that provide thousands of hours of valuable time to help enhance recreational experiences for all participants.

This volunteer manual is designed to give you important and useful information that will help you with your volunteer experience. A Recreation Supervisor will give you additional information about the program with which you volunteer to help.

Please feel free to contact your Supervisor, a Department Head or myself should you have any questions.

Thank you for your service to the Park District and the community we serve.

Dave Harris
Executive Director
