Welcome to what we think is the best season at Blue Island Park District – SUMMER! That’s because our parks are a very special destination this time of year. On our site, you’ll find an incredible selection of programs and special events for everyone in your family. Here are a few of our favorites:

 

Summer Camp – With options for children ages 4-12, including our starter camp with perennial favorite Mrs. C, our day camps fill up quickly. Register today for a fantastic summer experience that includes arts and crafts, games, sports, swimming, and field trips with our highly-engaged staff of counselors.

 

Stay Cool at the Pool – The best way to stay cool in Blue Island during summer is at Memorial Park Pool and Splash Pad. From Red Cross Swim Lessons to Aqua Zumba to our annual Cardboard Boat Regatta, the pool is a place your whole family will love. Pick up your season pass to take advantage of summer-long savings!

 

BBQ on the Hill – Scheduled for September 22-23, 2017, our 4th annual festival and BBQ competition will be the best yet. Bring your family out both days to chow down on delicious BBQ and other neighborhood favorites, listen to live music, turn the kids loose in Bounce City, and sample the competition live on Saturday.
