Volunteer your time
Serve your community with your time and talents!! The Naperville Park District relies on many different kinds of volunteers throughout the year to make its programs and events successful. We need receptionists for our senior adult programs, special event helpers, coaches for youth sports, and more! If you are looking for an opportunity to get involved in the community, please consider volunteering with us!

Volunteering with the Park District is a great way to meet and socialize with others, share your expertise, help fellow community members - and have fun!

Recycle in our Parks
Look for the blue recycling containers next to the trash containers in our parks. You can recycle plastic, aluminum and glass in the same container. Please keep trash separate. Thanks for your help.
 
Recycle at Home
Take advantage of the City of Naperville’s recycling drop-off program at the Public Works Facility and at the Hazardous Waste Drop Off Center, both located on Fort Hill Drive in Naperville.
