Naperville residents can learn more about what's going on in their parks during a State of the Park District event at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at the Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center at 305 W. Jackson Ave.
Park board President Kirsten Young said she plans to discuss the district's accomplishments in 2012 and its goals for 2013.
Park officials said the State of the Park District address is just one of the ways the district communicates both formally and informally with the community. For example, in 2012 the district conducted a Community Interest and Opinion Survey and held several public outreach events including park openings and open house meetings to discuss capital projects and the 2012 Master Plan.
Attendees also will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to win a 2013 Centennial Beach season membership or a round of golf for two at either Springbrook or Naperbrook golf courses.
A light breakfast will be served at 8 a.m. To help plan for refreshments, the district is asking those who wish to attend to RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, Feb. 7.
