Dear Cary Park District Residents,
At the most recent Illinois Association of Park Districts and the Illinois Park and Recreation Association state conference, the Cary Park District received the Distinguished Accreditation Award. This prestigious award is in recognition of the Board and Staff’s commitment to providing quality facilities, programs, and services to residents.
Also honored at the state conference was Commissioner Mike Renner with the Mike Cassidy Commissioner Community Service Award. Commissioner Renner was chosen as the recipient of this award for demonstrating tireless assistance and leadership through contribution of time, service, and volunteer efforts to the community.
My time as a commissioner on the Park Board is coming to an end and I am honored to have served you. When I started serving on the Board, the Park District had just completed it’s Comprehensive Master Plan. I am proud of everything that the District has accomplished since that time and here are a few highlights:
- Skate Park at Lions Park
- Community Center Renovation
- Cary Community Trail Development
- Cary-Algonquin Road Trail Development
- Hoffman Park Trail Improvements
- Hoffman Park Phase 1 Development: including a
open leash dog play area, accessible fishing area,
nature observation area, community gardens, trails,
picnic shelter, and restrooms
- Lions Park Maintenance Garage Renovation
- West Lake Park Trail and Playground Development
- Greenfields Park Playground Renovation
- Foxford Hills Golf Club Driving Range Lights
- Chalet Hills Park Playground Development
With the Master Plan as our guide, I am confident
that you will see more park developments and
improvements in the future.
In addition to park and facility improvements, we will be offering additional amenities in several of our recreational programs. New this year, the pool will open a week earlier on May 25. Have your purchased your Chilly Willy Pass? Don’t miss out on your ticket to the pool this summer. Not only will you receive a discount off the pool pass rate, you will be able to participate in our Member Sundays allowing you to swim an hour earlier than the general admission.
Don’t forget about the hundreds of recreational
programs, camps, lessons, and events this summer.
Or simply enjoy a family outing or picnic at one of the Districts many parks.
Again, I am honored to have served as your President and Commissioner and I look forward to seeing you at the summer events.
Bonnie Hill, President
Board of Commissioners
2007 - 2013
