Lindenhurst Park District is located in northwestern Lake County, Illinois. The District was formed on April 15, 1988, making us one of the youngest Park Districts in Lake County.
A five-member non-paid elected board establishes policy for the district and provides direction on program and facility development. Our current park board has over 55 years of combined experience.
We have a supporting cast of local individuals, organizations, government, and businesses, allowing our Park District to move forward progressively and accomplish improvements beneficial to you. Recreational opportunities continue growing with 19 named park sites, two beaches and 15 playgrounds (126 acres and 25 parcels of open space total), which offer great active features combined with designated passive/natural areas.
We operate a 31,000 sq. ft. community center with a full-size gymnasium, 3-lane suspended walking/jogging track, aerobic and dance studios, senior/active adult room, preschool, multi-purpose and activity rooms, offices and more, all ADA accessible. We also have made improvements at each named park and beach site within the decade, under a tax cap, and without a referendum.
