FALL 2011 ACTIVITY GUIDE




                           as stated in the 2011 summer brochure, the butterfield park district has begun to imple-
                           ment improvements to our programs, properties and facility. the fall brochure is the sec-
                           ond edition of our revised program guide. based on feedback from the summer brochure,
                           patrons were excited about the changes. Comments included that it was much easier to
                           read and find information, it generated confidence regarding the programs, the district
                           seemed improved and the offerings seemed more exciting. the fall brochure will follow the
                           same style and direction established in the last publication.

                           our parks are in need of improvements. the district has began addressing this overdue
                           task with the recent renovation of Kensington park. the project was completed in the
                           spring of 2011 and includes a picnic shelter, new playground two baseball/softball fields,
                           walking/running path, mini soccer field and a natural area. a conceptual plan has been
                           developed to improve Hoffman park. this involved several public meetings and an online
                           survey. the results was a park including a multi-purpose sport court, basketball court,
                           picnic shelter restrooms, natural area, walk/run path, multi-purpose athletic fields, base-
                           ball/softball fields and a playground. the park district is working cooperatively with school
                           districts 44 to maximize resources. We are finalizing a recreational lease for the Comed
                           property that borders Hoffman park. to fund the project, the park district will be applying
                           for a grant. the park district will begin construction of a new playground this fall in coop-
                           eration with school district 44. With all of our properties, the districts goal is to increase
                           the ongoing care and maintenance. using the standards established at Kensington this
                           season, we will apply those same efforts to all of the district properties.

                           in order to increase the recreational opportunities the district provides its community
                           members, we have partnered with several organizations and recreation providers. the but-

                           trict residents now qualify for most of their programs as members resulting in significant
                           savings as well as the ability to participate in programs such as group exercise classes,
                           indoor swimming, racquetball. the park district also partners with synergy soccer, Lady
                           Lightning basketball, seven bridges ice arena, Western acres golf Course, and downers
                           grove golf Club.

                           expanded programming will be offered but keep in mind enrollment is essential for the
                           classes to run. the district will expand its active adult offerings by hosting monthly
                           events, increase its early childhood activities and develop an athletic department with a
                           focus on “learn to play” and recreation.

Join the Y and become a member of a community
that’s committed everyday to helping you and
your kids learn, grow and thrive.
We became a leading nonprofit by helping people everywhere develop the skills and relationships they need to be healthy, confident and
connected to others. Parents desire a safe environment in which children can learn practical and social skills and develop positive values. Kids
want to exert energy, discover who they are and what they can achieve and be accepted among each other. Adults want to learn more, do more
and live more healthily. We nurture life lessons in kids, foster health and well-being among people of any age, bring people together to pursue
passions old and new, and provide mutual support for everyone in our neighborhoods.
