Places

Parks and open space improve our physical and psychological health, strengthen our communities, and make our cities and neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work. Numerous studies have shown the social, environmental, economic, and health benefits parks bring to a community and its people. The Peoria Park District invites you to visit one of our many parks and places to enjoy the great outdoors! Parks in the Peoria Park District are open from dawn to dusk, with some amenities open until 11pm.
