How can the public find out what is going on at the Park District?
The Glenview Park District maintains a web site at www.glenviewparks.org that provides background on the district, current programs and meeting agendas. A file of background material for the meetings is available at the park district Administrative Office, 1930 Prairie St. and at the Glenview Public Library, 1930 Glenview Rd. The Glenview Park District Guide, a catalog of upcoming seasonal program offerings, is mailed to all residents of the district four times a year in February, May, July, and November and other information of public interest is covered in special flyers from time to time. An e-newsletter, Park It Here, with information on upcoming park district events and programs, is also distributed to subscribers twice a month.

The park board conducts public hearings from time to time to discuss specific topics such as playground renovations. There are also Bulletin Boards at each park district facility to alert the public to upcoming events.
How can the public express opinions or share facts with the Board of Commissioners and staff?
