Proving assistance so all individuals
can enjoy Park District programs
Through fundraising efforts throughout the year, the Park Ridge Friends of the Parks provides funding to support the scholarship program at the Park Ridge Park District. The scholarship program provides low income individuals and families assistance so they can participate in Park District programs such as Preschool, Beyond the Bell, Camp, and swim lessons. From just four individuals in 2011 to 35 in 2018, the need continues to grow. The Friends of the Parks supported the scholarship program with $4949.80 in 2018.
Park Ridge Park District residents may apply for assistance.
