The Fox Valley Park District remains committed to delivering programs and activities – albeit through a different lens – to encourage community engagement and offer recreational opportunities to our residents in a virtual capacity. Like everyone else, we’re operating with an adjusted mindset, but our ultimate goal is to ensure that community members have helpful resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay engaged from home while we all deal with changes to our daily routine.

Use these resources to build your own learning opportunities, have some fun and break away from the monotony of the stay-at-home order.

Wishing you good health and hope to see you soon.
