The Mt. Prospect Park District is committed to making our community a better place to live, learn, work and play.

Parks & Recreation offer unique opportunities in which to advance diversity, equity and inclusion. By ensuring representation of diverse life experiences and voices, the Mt. Prospect Park District can better reflect the communities it serves.

Diversity encompasses all the differences that make us unique, including but not limited to race, color, ethnicity, language, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, gender, socio-economic status, age and physical and mental ability.  

Equity promotes fairness and justice while both challenging and responding to bias, harassment and discrimination.
Inclusion ensures equitable access to resources and opportunities for all. It pursues a culture where individuals and groups can feel safe, respected, heard, engaged, motivated and valued.

The DEI commitment is ongoing; the work is not linear and cannot be defined by a beginning and an end. With a mission to provide exceptional parks and recreation experiences that enrich the quality of life for present and future generations, the Mt. Prospect Park District will continue to listen, learn and adapt in order to fulfill our mission.

The Mt. Prospect Park District is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to providing equal opportunities to all qualified individuals.
