Winter program registration is now open!
Beginning with this Winter 2014 issue of the Spectrum, our Program & Events Guide, the Park District will no longer mail the brochure to every household in Des Plaines. As part of our Going Green project, this represents a significant savings. Read more...
We will still print thousands of copies of the Spectrum each season.
The brochure will still be available online 24/7.
Q. How can I get a copy of the Spectrum?
That's easy. Pick one up in any of our facilities, the Des Plaines Public Library, City Hall, the History Center, or the Frisbie Senior Center.
Q. How will I know when the Spectrum is available?
• Information is posted on our website, Facebook and Twitter.
• Signs, posters and banners are in our facilities and in our parks.
• Information is our our digital message board and TV screens, as well as the City's message board and cable TV channels 17 & 24.
• Our staff, instructors, and coaches all have the information. Copies Spectrum will be available in more places (the
Fitness Center, the aerobics and dance rooms, meeting rooms, classrooms, fieldhouses...).
We're confident that if you want a copy of the Spectrum, you'll know when and where to get one in plenty of time to read it, plan your classes, and register. We appreciate your support of this important project!
