Hello Friends!

What a wonderful time of year! Though most of us do not look forward to this type of weather, I feel there is something special about it. The cold can be brutal, but sometimes it brings peace and serenity if you enjoy being outdoors. If you are not a fan of this weather, have no fear we have something for you. Throughout this guide you will find programs that fit your needs whether you would like to be outside or inside. For those like me who enjoy the outdoors no matter the time of year, don’t forget to join us for our winter hike at Starved Rock State Park. This hike allows you to see a side of Starved Rock that most don’t get to. You can also enjoy the great outdoors by experiencing our Ice Rink. We have once again partnered with the City of Sandwich to provide this fantastic amenity. Grab your skates and join us for a fun time on the ice!

For those of you who are the indoor type, don’t worry we have something for you too. This year we will once again be offering our very popular Daddy Daughter Dance and Mother Son Bowl. These two events are a family favorite here at the Sandwich Park District. We would love to see you join us on these days for a fun memorable night out. New this summer we be taking a trip to the famous Joffrey Ballet for an elegant evening seeing Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 fairytale “Little Mermaid”. We hope you will consider joining us for this magical night at the Ballet in downtown Chicago.

Spring is on the horizon! Throughout this guide you will also find numerous spring programs for the whole family. What better way to prepare for spring then to attend the Spring Garden Workshop. This FREE education event allows participants to gain some new knowledge on gardening and nature in general. There will be three education sessions during this event that will cover different aspects of backyard gardening and nature. With spring also comes sports! This spring we welcome you to sign the kids up for the very popular Spring Soccer season. The GOAL of our spring soccer season is to continue to build your child’s skills in soccer and to provide an opportunity to have fun while playing with friends.

We offer a few different levels of this program to fit your child’s age. We are extremely excited for this upcoming spring and we hope you are too. We can’t wait to spend another great spring with you out in YOUR parks. Winter time can be hard to get motivated in staying active, but remember Newton’s Law of Motion “An object in motion stays in motion”. Stay safe this winter and don’t forget to be active!

We hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season!
