Park District

Welcome to the Grandwood Park Park District            

The Grandwood Park Park District, established in 1965, is a
municipal governing agency providing parks, recreation facilities
and events/programs for its residents. We are located in unincorporated Gurnee, in northern Lake County, Illinois.

The Board of Commissioners consists of five (5) unpaid elected officials, each serving a 6-year term. Park District meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Grandwood Park Park District Community Center Conference Room on Hutchins Road. These meetings are open to all residents of the Park District and attendance is encouraged! Your suggestions, ideas and comments are welcomed by the Board of Commissioners during the Public Comment section at these meetings.

The Park District maintains all Park District properties which includes the Lake Park, Sport Courts, Adam's Park, Hutchins Athletic Field, Unity Trail, Community Center building, pole barn, retention ponds and several undeveloped areas. 

Among the many activities the Park District either sponsors or co-sponsors with the Grandwood Park Civic Association are the following:

  • Children's parties at Easter, Halloween and the Holidays
  • Annual Oktoberfest
  • Senior Luncheon
  • Save the Lake Days
