To Leave No Child Inside


The East St. Louis Park District has an ongoing and pleasurable obligation to provide great parks and recreational facilities to fulfill the need to impact people of all ages in our park district community of 60,000 with safe, quality, inviting, and well maintained outdoor spaces.


We will continue to seek out partnerships and funding sources to improve and update ball fields, playground equipment, tennis courts and other recreational facilities.


Parks yield to our neighborhoods a public service of providing green space, aquatics, and healthy outdoor activity toward the positive development of body, mind, and spirit.


Our vision for the near future is to improve all current parks and recreational facilities with direly needed upgrades in addition to building new and state-of-the art facilities where necessary. Walking trail designs throughout the park district will become a focal point as we work to connect communities with trails.  A new swimming pool constructed in the historic Lincoln Park is in the planning stage.  An amphitheatre is proposed for beautiful Jones Park, the largest and oldest park owned by the East St. Louis Park District.
