The mission of the Lombard Park District is to provide people with quality recreation opportunities to enjoy life.
Since 1927, the Lombard Park District has proudly provided opportunities for people to enjoy life. In fact, we’ve continued to improve and beautify our many parks as well as expand our recreation programs and special events in order to provide our residents with the best parks and recreation programs possible.
Today the Lombard Park District consists of about 450 acres of land, including the world-renowned 8.5 acre horticultural showcase of Lilacia Park. A breathtaking floral display, Lilacia Park contains approximately 200 cultivars of lilacs, and 50 varieties of tulips which bloom every spring. Lilacia Park is the site “Lilac Time, a village tradition that dates back to the late 1920′s and attracts visitors from throughout the Midwest and beyond.
In 2009, the Lombard Park District was awarded the coveted National Gold Medal in Excellence in Parks and Recreation.
