About the District

The Park District, established in 1923, is in the process of acquiring and developing park sites and open spaces to serve a growing community’s recreation and wellness needs. It currently manages 509 acres of land which is made up of neighborhood parks, community parks, athletic fields, wetlands, woodlands, and high-quality natural areas. The District also maintains 9.8 miles of walking/cycling trails that connect people to parks, businesses, schools, and each other.

Within these park spaces, one can enjoy a Community Center with fitness areas, a gymnasium, and classrooms, an 18-hole golf course, dog park, community pool, and splashpad. Staff provides recreational and wellness programming throughout these parks and facilities.

Through the support of tax dollars, the Sycamore Parks Foundation, and partners, which include community groups and local bodies of government, the Sycamore Park District keeps Sycamore connected to wellness, nature, and each other!
