THE BEST CHOICE TO LEARN, WORK, LEAD

Parks & Recreation Overview

Every Kid in a Park District 49 benefits from many family-orientated park and recreation centers. To promote healthy, well-rounded lifestyles, the district seeks and maintains community partnerships to better encourage physical activity and environmental awareness.

Did you know that you own millions of acres of national parks, historic structures, cultural artifacts, ancient forests, snow-capped mountains, and clear blue lakes? Our federal public lands and waters belong to all Americans and are waiting for you to explore them! You can get your Every Kid in a Park pass at EveryKidInAPark.gov, the official website where parents, educators and kids can learn more.

To help engage and create our next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates, the White House, in partnership with the Federal Land Management agencies, launched the Every Kid in a Park initiative. The immediate goal is to provide an opportunity for each and every fourth grade student across the country to experience their federal public lands and waters in person throughout the 2015-2016 school year.

From Sept. 1, 2015, to Aug. 31, 2016, all kids in the fourth grade have access to their own Every Kid in a Park pass.
This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests and national wildlife refuges.
