Letter From The President



No matter what season it is, our 58 parks and playgrounds, on over 700 acres, beckon anyone looking for fun and adventure.

Look No Further! These Park District destinations will provide you lots of fun and adventure all day long; with heart-pumping activities such as seeing your golf ball soar through the crisp Autumn air on our golf courses, or biking, bird watching, fishing, and even discovering our local history.

Are you short on time? Get your golf fix in 3, 6, or 9-holes at Arlington Lakes. Swing over to the AHPD Golf Clubs to learn more.

Do you love Butterflies & Nature? Volunteers installed butterfly gardens at Heritage and Centennial Parks. 

Enjoy Arlington Heights History? The Mùˆller House, on the Historical Museum campus, is on the National Register of Historic Places?

Seeking a nature based location to walk, run, bike ride, or perhaps snow-shoe? Lake Arlington just received a $1.4M face-lift. Including a new multi-generational playground, shelter, sensory garden, pier, and pathway improvements. Gather the whole family and help us unveil the new Lake Arlington on Saturday, August 25th. Learn more about our Grand Reopening event.

With so many year-round recreation destinations within the Arlington Heights Park District’s boundaries, you’re sure to have more experiences on our beautiful land than you can keep track of. We believe this so much so that we’ve started some of your post-AHPD- travel photo captions for you:

  • “Beat my personal best at Arlington Lakes!”

  • “Spotted these hawks nesting at Lake Arlington.”

Write your own captions as you explore more of the Arlington Heights Park District this fall. We’d love you to share them with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
