Regional Parks Free Again on Green Friday

A Message from General Manager Robert E. Doyle
November - December 2018

This year marks the Park District’s fourth annual “Green Friday” where the Park District makes Regional Parks FREE the day after Thanksgiving to encourage residents to connect with nature rather than shop.

There's no better and healthier way to spend time with family and friends than getting outside and experiencing nature together.

The Park District’s Green Friday is part of the “#OptOutside” movement started in 2015 by REI when they closed their doors on Black Friday to encourage employees and the public to explore the outdoors.

Note: Fee waiver does not apply to state fees, including fishing licenses and watercraft inspections, and does not apply to District concessions such as the Tilden Merry-Go-Round and trains.

See you in your Regional Parks!
