Donating to charitable causes has long been an essential pillar of community development, contributing to the well-being and unity of society. A unique and deeply meaningful way to enrich your local community is through the donation of memorial trees to your beloved Central Park. While financial contributions remain vital for the maintenance and enhancement of public spaces, memorial trees offer an enduring, environmentally friendly means of honoring loved ones and simultaneously benefiting both the environment and the community at large.


The Foundation Board welcomes three new board members! Each new Board Member is ready to use their knowledge and experience to progress the Foundation forward.

  • Kathleen J. Carson
  • Dr. Vivek Mohan

The Oak Brook Park District will be onsite Thursday nights at the Summer Concert Series. Board Members will be selling Oh Bee Parks Honey, provide information about the Leave a Legacy Program, and answer any questions you may have for them. 

The Board of Directors is seeking to fill a recent vacancy.

Candidates may be residents of the district or non-residents who have a special interest in the district and the preservation of open space and the ownership, construction, and two improvements of public parks, recreation areas, and facilities.

Directors are responsible for the following:

Get a group together and play Pickleball at the Oak Brook Park District.

Funds are being raised by the Oak Brook Park District Foundation to sustain and enhance amenities at Central Park.

Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America, with over 4.8 million people taking to the court. Better yet, it is the fastest-growing sport at the Oak Brook Park District! Ever thought about joining the fun? Rent our indoor courts with a group of 10 or more!

Just Show up and Play!

The Winter Lights at Central Park began in 2020 to offer a free outdoor activity to bring happiness and joy to the community during the pandemic. To do this, the Oak Brook Park District, with the support of the Oak Brook Park District Foundation, created an inclusive experience everyone could participate regardless of ability or socioeconomic status. An event growing in design and community popularity, this season’s event offered a free ½ mile loop with over 9+ individual scenes with music and moving lights.

The Oak Brook Park District Foundation is pleased to announce its continued partnership with the Peoples Resource Center. For the second year in a row, the Oak Brook Park District Foundation will accept donations on behalf of the Peoples Resource Center.

When the hives produce enough honey that it can be harvested without risking the health of the colony, the community will have the opportunity to purchase this hyper-local product through the Oak Brook Park District Foundation. The foundation will utilize the funding from honey sales to help to support the mission of the Oak Brook Park District, enhance the growth and preservation of parks, open lands, and increase recreational programming in Oak Brook. When available, the honey may be purchased at the Family Recreation Center and Tennis Center.

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate the Park District’s 60th Birthday by purchasing a beverage at the Oak Brook Park District Foundation beer tent. Proceeds go directly to the Oak Brook Park District Foundation to support the enhancement, use, growth, and preservation of parks, open lands, facilities, and programs.
