The Des Plaines Optimist Club raises money for youth activities through their sales of Christmas trees during the month of December. Their mission is to sponsor fun, educational activities and outings and have been doing so since 1919. This past summer The Des Plaines Optimists also hosted a Fishing Derby and Friday Night Movies at the Lake.

The next event at Lake Park will be Fall Fest, September 16-18, a three-day, family-friendly festival including live entertainment, carnival rides, booths and games, food and drink, a car show, baggo, a country fair tent and a fishing derby.
