PLAYBOOK - Your Guide to DGParks

Welcome to your new Downers Grove Park District Playbook. This is your owners manual to the district - a handy guide to help you get the most out of all the places to go, things to go and chances to play within your park district! We've packed this book with maps, rental guides and tips on everything from shoe recycling to Loki (the red eared slider who lives at Lyman Woods).

  • Checks or money orders may be made payable to Downers Grove Park District.
  • There is a $25 service charge for returned checks.
