In 1963, The Lemont Township Park District originated as an idea which was formed by Township Supervisor, Lewis N. Ruppert during his first year in office.
In his first year, he received many inquiries from township residents regarding recreational facilities. He realized as Township Supervisor he could not legally do anything to satisfy the recreational needs and requirements of the citizens. So, he proactively suggested to them that the Township needed a Park District.
The Mission of the Lemont Park District is to provide the very best parks and recreation experiences to the community while being safe and fiscally responsible.
The Lemont Park District strives to be collaborative, proactive and progressive in serving our community.
