Friday, September 22, 2023

The Illinois Association of Park Districts (IAPD) recently conducted a survey of Illinois residents to gather feedback and gauge satisfaction with regard to park and recreation agencies and their impact on quality of life. Information regarding the survey findings can be found here. Some of the key findings include:

  • The availability of recreational programs and facilities and the amount of open space rank among the top three attributes having the biggest impact on a community's perceived quality of life.
  • 87% of Illinoisans feel that their local park district is representative and inclusive of all groups in their community.
  • 88% of residents agree that parks and open space help to improve local property values.

The Naperville Park District appreciates the opportunity to serve the park and recreation needs of our community and we hope you find this information helpful.
