Individuals in all groups enjoy our beautiful municipal pool and putt-putt course from June through August.

We also coordinate annual events, such as Winterfest, Daddy Daughter Dance, Mayor's 5K Race, Independence Day Parade and Fun Fest, and the Halloween Boo Bash.

Recreation Master Plan and Master Plan Update

The City of Oak Park seeks professional consulting services to prepare a comprehensive update to the City’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The City is looking for more than just a routine update, as we are focused on transforming Oak Park’s quality of life amenities through the improvement of existing, and creation of exciting new recreational opportunities. The plan will guide this transformation with a ten-year vision for parks, recreation, open space and trails, a study of the City’s current recreation assets, and a comprehensive assessment of the City’s future needs for recreation programs, services and facilities. The Plan will include research, public involvement, the development of recommendations, and an action plan to implement the vision.  

The Request for Proposals for Consulting Services to update the Parks and Recreation Master Plan/Comprehensive Recreation Assessment can be found here.


Copies of the City of Oak Park's current Parks and Recreation Master Plan (2018-2022) are available for public review at the Oak Park Recreation Department, the Oak Park Library, and in City Hall. Or, if you would like to review the report online, visit City of Oak Park's Parks and Recreation Master Plan (2018-2022).
