Calling all boat cruisers and designers! The Addison Park District is hosting its annual Build A Boat Contest. This race will be held at Community Park outdoor pool on Saturday, August 8th from 12:30 -- 1:30 p.m. There is a $6 registration fee for Addison residents and $8 for non-residents.

Build A Boat is a challenge to design and build a human-powered cardboard boat capable of racing 50 meters. All boats are to be designed and built prior to the day of the race. They may be powered by canoe or kayak paddles or muscle power! Stop by after the Touch-A-Truck event at Centennial Park and race a boat!

The Addison Park district is committed to providing the highest quality recreational opportunities and open space for everyone. The 2015 Fall Fun Guide will be delivered to the homes of Addison residents on Friday, August 14. If you do not receive your copy, please call the Park District administrative office at (630) 233-7275 and provide your home address for delivery. Additionally, the brochure will be available in each facility and online at www.addisonparks.org with a full curriculum of leisure activities for all ages and lifestyles.
