The district is governed by an elected Board of Park Commissioners who serve six year terms of office without pay. The board meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Lindenhurst Park District Community Center. Board members set policy for the district, which is administered by the Executive Director and a staff of recreation professionals. The board receives community input through its citizens in various capacities; including community volunteers, and from the general public.
