About the Park District

About Us

The Addison Park District was formed in 1969. It grew out of the prior Village of Addison Recreation Commission. When the district was formed, a number of parks were immediately deeded to the park district. These eight original parks consisted of approximately 50 acres. As of today, the District has 25 park sites encompassing more than 290 acres. The park district consists of nine square miles and serves a population of approximately 37,000. It employs 23 full-time, 15 part-time and over 250 seasonal staff members.

The district has two major community parks, Community Park on the east side of Addison and Centennial Park on the west side of town. Centennial Park houses Northeast DuPage Special Recreation Association (NEDSRA) and a state-of-the-art fitness facility, Club Fitness. Both of these sites have community centers with a gym, meeting rooms, and activity rooms. Community Park hosts the Family Aquatic Center outdoor pool as well as the Active Adult senior leisure center. Additionally, the Park District co-owns a gymnasium with Elementary School District #4 at Army Trail School. The Links & Tees Golf Facility on Lake Street features an outdoor practice range, 9 hole golf course, Putter’s Peak adventure mini-golf course, and an indoor golf dome.

Character Counts logo

Character Counts in Addison

What does the statement Character Counts mean? Character Counts is a nationally recognized program that structures character education around six pillars of character:

• Trustworthiness • Respect • Responsibility
• Fairness • Caring • Citizenship

This program promotes a united effort on the part of all agencies to provide children with the same message. Each day we are bombarded with negative images in the news and media. Addison, as well as other communities, are trying to bring back the positives. Character Counts is a program that helps children and adults focus on building and becoming good citizens.

Addison Park District incorporates the six pillars of Character Counts into all our programs. Instructors learn the program and in turn incorporate the pillars into their instruction.

Teamwork and sportsmanship are the keys to a good team, not only in sports, but in life. This is why the Addison Park District has joined the Village of Addison, District #4, District #88, the Police Department, the Library and so many others to bring this positive program to the residents of Addison and everyone we serve.
