The Hancock Park District routinely takes photographs of program and event participants. Photographs under the supervision of Hancock Park District may be used for promotional purposes, including but not limited to web site, print materials, displays, and media publications. By registering for and/or attending programs or events, you are acknowledging your awareness and acceptance of the fact that photographs may be taken of you and your family. 


Interested in viewing Riverbend's Brugeman Lodge or Litzenberg's Activity Barn?

An Open House is normally held at Brugeman Lodge at Riverbend Recreation Area from 6-8 PM on the last Monday of each month. If a holiday falls on the last Monday of the month, the Lodge open house will take place the Monday before. On the last Tuesday of the months of March through November, from 6 - 8 PM, there is an Open House at the Litzenberg Memorial Woods Activity Barn. 

A Service Ranger will be available at each facility to allow any interested person(s) to view, inspect, and ask questions regarding the facility. Bring your tape measure, notepad, camera or video recorder to record your findings. Reservations or available dates are not provided at the Open House.


Riverbend Dog Park's new waste disposal system is bagless

The Hancock Park District Field of Dreams Dog Park at Riverbend Recreation Area now offers an environmentally-friendly waste disposal system. The popular facility was closed during the last week of April for the installation of this unit as well as new fencing.

The disposal system includes a tank which eliminates the need for trash cans inside the dog park, although one trash can will be located at the entry outside of the gate. Patrons are asked not to place trash bags inside the tank as this could deter and possibly damage its composting system. Instead, HPD has placed scoopers for dog owner use beside the front gate.

Registration open for 2017 Summer Camps

If you said “yes” to any of the above, then register for one (or all) 2017 Summer Camps in your Hancock Park District. A medical form is required to attend all camps.
