October brings fall colors to the Mt. Prospect Park District’s 27 parks. From early peeks of yellow to red, orange and gold later this month, fall is a time for trees to shine.


The Mt. Prospect Parks Foundation is the fundraising arm of the Park District and continues to support the efforts to replace trees lost in parks due to disease or damage. The Foundation pledged $10,000 to the tree replacement campaign and is working with the community to match these funds.


On Friday, October 15, the Foundation is hosting a Creature Feature Movie Night. For a $25 donation, families and friends receive an assigned circle to watch “Shrek” outdoors at the Veterans Memorial Bandshell. Each circle holds up to six people and receives a bucket of treats to share! Foundation members will also be selling tickets to the Shrek All-Star Raffle with tons of prizes for the whole family.


Help re-green our parks while watching your favorite green ogre! Visit mppd.org and purchase your circle on WebStore or visit RecPlex or Central Community Center and staff will be happy to help.
