The Oswegoland Park District is Your Place to Play! We strive to deliver exceptional value to our community. As a resident, approximately 4.5% of your local real estate tax bill is allocated to making it possible for us to provide the parks, facilities, programs, and events that “create opportunities for a healthy community.”
In all, tax dollars comprise about half of the annual Park District budget, with fees from activities, rentals, product sales, as well as sponsorships, making up the other half.
Here is a snapshot of some of the outstanding parks and facilities that you can enjoy:
Benefits of Parks and Recreation
These are just some of the ways we all benefit from investing in parks and recreation:
Access to parks and recreation facilities leads to healthy lifestyles for people of all ages. Recreation can build self-esteem, reduce stress, and improve overall wellness.
Parks give communities a vital identity. Well-maintained, accessible parks and recreation facilities are key elements of strong, safe, family-friendly communities.
Parks enhance property values, contribute to healthy and productive workforces, and help attract and retain businesses.
Parks play a key role in preserving water and air quality, reducing congestion and protecting wildlife. People learn about the environment firsthand in parks and take those lessons home with them.
