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 6 th 2024. We hope you will join us that morning for a celebration parade throughout Sandwich. Organizations, businesses, civic groups, families, and many others will be putting together some amazing floats and displays to help us celebrate. At the end of the day don’t forget to join us at the beautiful Sandwich Fair Grounds for some good family time with food, games, and live entrainment. To close the night off, we will be lighting up the sky with the best firework display around! We hope you are able to make it to this fun family tradition of celebrating our nations independence.

As you can imagine, summer time is the busiest time for park enjoyment. Summer always keeps the Parks Department working hard to keep your parks beautiful. This summer the Parks Department plans on doing some path repair to Harvey Creek as well as areas at Milestone Park. We are also excited to have our first summer out at Troeger Dog Park. This summer is going to the dogs as they will get the opportunity to get out and enjoy a beautiful park all their own. If you haven’t already done so, please remember to register your dog so they can have fun and get the chance to enjoy all the glory of the dog park.

We are excited to see you out enjoying YOUR parks this summer! If you can make time, I challenge you to visit a park in Sandwich that maybe you have never been to. We have many great parks throughout our town and we hope you get the chance to enjoy them all this summer. For a list of parks, look on the park information page of this guide for all the parks and amenities we offer. We hope you have an amazing summer filled with making memories and enjoying family time!

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play IS serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood”.
