Dear Park District Resident,

The Downer Grove Park District is currently updating its Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Throughout the planning process, the Park District’s goal is to have a high level of community involvement and engagement, including focus group discussions and public open house meetings.

Share your thoughts!
We are also conducting a Community Needs Assessment survey to better understand our residents’ priorities for parks, open space, recreation programs and facilities within the community. Your household is one of a limited number selected at random to receive this survey, so we hope that you will be able to participate.

We appreciate your time.
We realize that this survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete, but each question is important. The time you invest in completing this survey will aid the Downers Grove Park District in taking a resident-driven approach to making decisions that will enrich our community and positively affect the lives of its residents.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Paul Fyle, Superintendent of Planning at (630) 960-5451 or email at Please also visit our Park and Recreation Master Plan website at for project updates and notices of upcoming public meetings!
