The Arlington Heights Park District and the Parks and Planning Department are keepers of the parks for future generations. We promote sound policies, procedures, and practices. We have an Environmental Policy and an Enviro Group task force of employees who promote our goal.
Staff across the Park District have formed an environmental team, "Enviro Group" to help promote and encourage sustainable practices as well. Their mission: "To help set a high standard of leadership and competency in the promotion and incorporation of sound environmental practices and lifestyles."

Clean Up A Park
A “Clean Up The Parks” event is an excellent way for individuals or organizations to get involved with their local park and do a good thing for the community at the same time! Gather family, friends, and neighbors, for a clean-up party! The Park District will supply bags, gloves, rakes and other materials as necessary. The Parks Service Center has a list of parks and activities that you or your group can do from cleaning up garbage, to weeding, to helping to spread wood chips!
To Register: Call Parks Service Center, at 847-577-3013 between 9 am and 3 pm weekdays.
