The oldest and largest park district in Illinois, the Peoria Park District encompasses nearly 60 square miles. The value we provide to the community can be found in the ease of access to our parks and recreational programs.
We are proud to be able to provide access to the great outdoors through our parks system and nature centers that host more than 50 miles of hiking and biking trails in and around Peoria.
Our variety of events and facilities throughout our community will keep you engaged and active. Glen Oak Park is home to Peoria Zoo, Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum and Luthy Botanical Garden. Throughout the District, we host all kinds of sports including softball, soccer, volleyball, tennis and more while Owens Center offers ice skating year-round! Annually, hundreds of concerts, festivals and special events are featured on the Peoria RiverFront and in our parks, in addition to fun activities at Franciscan, Lakeview, Logan and Proctor Recreation Centers. And, of course, the RiverPlex, our state of the art, medically-based fitness center focuses on healthy and active lifestyles.
