The Recreation and Parks Advisory Board's mission is to advise the Board of Trustees of the progress in community building through our parks. Park Forest is a community with destination parks, open spaces, swimming pools, and a vast and diverse wetland easily accessible to all residents. As part of our community building, our main focus is to bring the benefits of play into our parks for everyone. Play is not just good for the individual, but it brings us together as a group. When you discover our parks and spend time there, there is a rediscovery of play which produces not only a physical, but a mental sense of wellbeing. Therefore, the Advisory Board is committed to all our residents to cultivate an appreciation for nature, encourage healthy lifestyle, and build community through our Recreation and Parks.
We invite to you to be a part of the Recreation and Parks Advisory Board.
