“Check your mailbox. The park district catalog is out today.” So said my neighbor when I ran into her this morning. For those who haven’t a clue what I’m writing about, here’s the deal. The Glenview Park District publishes a catalog prior to each season. It’s fantastic! It identifies all of the activities available through the district for the next season. For many Glenview residents this is a big day.
Our local park district is special. You can’t believe all of the things that it has to offer for kids and adults. In fact, there’s so much that the catalog is 96 pages long! You want sports? Well, take your pick…tennis, basketball, soccer, swimming, golf, ice skating, football, archery, fishing, wrestling, baseball, volleyball, gymnastics, Tae Kwon Do, karate, and lacrosse.
How about the arts? Drawing, painting, mixed media arts, ceramics, film, acting, dance, origami, calligraphy, floral design, guitar.
Health and fitness? Walking tracks, fitness club, swimming pools, yoga courses, exercise classes.
Science and technology? Computer classes, game design, robotics, and much more.
There are organized activities at Wagner Farm and the Grove Redfield Estate. The park district even has a wonderful pre-school.
Everything is organized by age groups, and as you can tell there’s something for everybody. Many of the sports, health, and fitness programs are right here in The Glen either in the Park Center or in Gallery Park. The Glen is much more than a place with great homes and shopping. It’s a lifestyle. And a big part of that lifestyle is the park district with its many activities and programs right here in our back yard.
