Hello Friends,

Spring is starting to emerge and things are starting to get green! This has definitely been one of the most interesting springs I think we have had in a long time. The Sandwich Park District is once again excited to spend another great spring and summer with you. This winter we enjoyed many successful programs and events. Over the winter we took participants on numerous trips and adventures. A couple of the trips we took included the Field Museum Chicago and a Chicago Wolves game. We love to host fun adventures and trips like these. Keep an eye out in this guide for some more fun summer adventures.

This summer we are ready to celebrate our nations freedom with our very popular Freedom Day’s Fireworks and Parade. This amazing event will be held on July 6th 2024. We hope you will join us that morning for a celebration parade throughout Sandwich …
