The Peoria Park District works every day to evolve to meet the changing needs of our community!  What’s ParkPossible?  Anything that we can collectively think of!  On this page, you’ll find additional information on current projects/ideas/possibilities that we want to share and imagine with you, our PPD family.  Our goal is to be transparent with our information and provide updates as often as possible to keep you in the know!

We invite YOU to engage with us through this site to learn more about our work and to provide your feedback and ideas so that we create the best possible Peoria Park District.

As we dream together, we have to balance fun and fiscal responsibility; to continue to be bold and innovative while serving our users in the best possible ways; and to evolve and grow with our community. We very much look forward to the community conversation that is an essential part of our process.

Upcoming Opportunities for public input/discussion:

We invite you to join us each Friday at 10am for a 10 minute live Q&A with staff. You can pre-submit questions to us via Facebook or during the live in the comments!

In 2020, after a lengthy public input process, the Peoria Park District removed the Christopher Columbus Statue in Upper Bradley Park.  After receipt of a community request to replace the statue, the District is seeking input on the placement of a new art installation at the same location along Parkside Road.   Its Board of Trustees have selected three options for public feedback.

Input will be accepted at two upcoming “Talk About It Tuesday” events on February 20th and February 27th, both from 5pm-6pm at the Bonnie W. Noble Center for Park District Administration. A zoom link is listed below for a virtual attendance option.

Public Input can also be e-mailed to [email protected]

Public Input Sessions/Talk About It Tuesday:

Public Input Sessions/Talk About It Tuesday:

The 3rd of July celebration in Glen Oak Park has been a community tradition for decades. However, in recent years, we have seen reduced participation and heightened safety concerns during the event, prompting us to seek your valuable feedback. We invite you to be part of the positive transformation of our 3rd of July celebration by sharing your opinions. Help us reimagine this event to better serve the East Bluff community, Glen Oak Park users, and our entire community in a safe and positive way. The survey will be open until February 16th!
