  A Letter from the Executive Director
As the Joliet Park District celebrates 98 years in 2020, we have a full schedule of programs and events to keep your family busy this summer.
Check out page 6 for a full list of Concerts in the Park! Bring a picnic basket and blanket and enjoy these FREE events all summer long. We also offer FREE Movies in the Park at various locations – so make plans to visit both!
If you haven’t seen the renovated back 9 at Wedgewood Golf Course, stop out this summer. Five new holes, a brand new irrigation system, and all 18 holes will be open for the full year. We have also added a new bar at Woodruff! Visit to make your tee time at Inwood, Woodruff, or Wedgewood today.
We are working on a number of upgrades at the Kathy Green Multi-Purpose Center – new flooring, controlled access entrance, and updated bathrooms throughout. We can’t wait to unveil the new and improved Kathy Green Multi-Purpose Center.
The Taste of Joliet returns to ATI Field at Joliet Memorial Stadium June 26 – 28 with over 20 food vendors, carnival, kid zone, and headline entertainment. Vince Neil, Bret Michaels, Brett Young, Dylan Scott, and Jimmie Allen will take the stage this summer – our 15th since the Taste returned in 2006. Last summer we welcomed over 55,000 people to the fest, and we are hoping for an even bigger year in 2020. For more information on the Taste of Joliet, visit
2020 is going to be a big year for the Joliet Park District. Hope to see you at one of our facilities, parks, programs, or events.

Interim Executive Director
Board of Commissioners
Commissioners are elected by Joliet Park District residents to serve staggered terms without compensation. They have the responsibility to develop policies which provide direction for the operation of the parks, facilities and recreation programs. The Board also hires the Executive Director, who in turn hires the staff which manages the various departments of the Joliet Park District. The Board of Commissioners meets on the fourth Monday of each month at Inwood Athletic Club, 3000 W. Jefferson Street,
at 5 pm. The public is invited to attend.
