About Us

What We Do

A council is a volunteer group of individuals who meet on a regular basis, who work in conjunction with the park district and the park supervisor to express the needs & concerns of the community and who acts as an advocate for the efficient functioning of the park. The Chicago Park District (CPD) seeks advisement from councils in order to provide the services, and needs of the community.  The council also advises the CPD of problems, issues and changes that need to take place in order for the park to operate efficiently.  


Why We Do What We Do

It is our desire to strengthen the Englewood Community by personal engagement of civic responsibility as well as galvanizing others to care, contribute, be responsible and productive members of society.    

How You Can Help

Volunteering at your local park gives the opportunity for you to invest in your community by lending your knowledge, experience, and skills that will aid in enabling the local community to obtain education, to be inspired to hope and to be provided with opportunities to unify with other community members.
