The Memorial Park District is a separate governing unit which levies its own tax to provide park facilities and recreation for the residents of the district.

Innovative leadership starts with our community-elected, five member Board of Commissioners. Members of the Board of Commissioners are elected to six year terms and serve without compensation.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month beginning at 4:30 PM at the Stevenson Fitness Center board room.

The public is always welcome to attend the open meetings and is encouraged to participate.

ADA Compliance

The Memorial Park District intends to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act Statement of Compliance which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. The District will make reasonable accommodations to disabled individuals who meet the essential eligibility requirements for participation in a recreation program. If a disabled individual believes he/she has been discriminated against in the provision of programs, facilities, goods or services of the District, that person may contact the Director of the Memorial Park District at (708) 547-3900. A procedure is available to disabled individuals for the resolution of complaints against the District.
