2020 College Scholarship Recipients

graduation

An absolute highlight of our Park District calendar is the annual awarding of college scholarships to graduating high school seniors that soon will be moving on to college and career. Our list of recipients, in some cases, are remembered by FSPD Board and staff as former preschool students, widget soccer participants, Park District volunteers, or neighbors that have grown up with the District. The Board of Commissioners congratulates the following recipients of the Frankfort Square Park District 2020 College Scholarship awards: Vincent Broenneke, Martin Hoban, Madison Lamphear, Allison Logan, Rachel Meister, David Vargas, Chase Zawilinski, and Audrey Zednick. These awards are normally presented to students during Lincoln-Way East’s Senior Scholarship Night, and although the event, originally scheduled for May 14, was cancelled, LWE did an exceptional job recognizing all college scholarship recipients through social media, posting to their website, and other forums. The FSPD Board and staff wishes all graduates the best of luck as they look forward to their college years ahead!


Dear FSPD Residents,
Per Illinois Executive Order 2020-10, all FSPD playgrounds are closed to public use until further notice.  In addition, use of outdoor exercise equipment, located at Arbor, Community, Lighthouse Pointe, and Brookside Bayou Parks, along with all picnic shelters and pickleball courts located at Community and Champions Parks, is currently unavailable, as posted.
Walking is still permitted on Park District and Frankfort Township paths, located throughout the community, with strict adherence to social distancing and public gathering.  Please note; Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 closed access to all campus athletic fields, facilities, and paths, including the Lincoln-Way North campus.
We need to work together to keep our parks clean.  We can’t avoid goose or coyote deposits, but the family dog that enjoys our paths is the responsibility of its owner.
I am encouraged by families spending time together, and also by the way in which people are communicating with friends and neighbors by phone, text, or email.  A friendly wave from a distance can be a tremendously helpful way to lift one’s spirits.
Sincerely,
Jim Randall
Executive Director

Pickleball Courts Closed
It is with great reluctance that, in the best interest of the general public, the Frankfort Square Park District must close its pickleball courts.
Please note; this decision was based on observation of non-compliance to the State of Illinois Executive Order 2020-10 in response to COVID-19.
