The Wildwood Park District is selling new Boat Keys and Decals for the 2020 season beginning on Wednesday, May 6th.  Resident parking stickers will also be available (current stickers expire 12/31/2020). The Park District office will be open Monday - Friday Noon until 4:00 p.m.  This is in response to the relaxing of the stay-at-home order regarding boating and fishing effective May 1st.  Social distancing will be implemented and only one individual/party will be allowed in the main office lobby at a time; and residents are asked to maintain six feet of separation outside the office if a line forms.  The appropriate signage will be laid out as well. Our main office asks that residents use the hand sanitizer provided at the office and wearing of masks is required. 


The Wildwood Park District has not yet changed the locks on the two boat ramps to coincide with the new boat key - and that date will be June 1.  Residents who did not purchase a boat key last year may obtain last year’s key, which is needed until 5/31/20 (as well as the new key) to use the ramps until the locks are changed.  


Residents will have three options for purchase of boat keys/decals.  


  1.  Come into the office at 33325 N. Sears Boulevard and obtain your new boat key and decal (and last year’s key if you did not have one) for a fee of $100 total.  Please bring your watercraft DNR registration form so the Park District can make a copy.
  2. Download, print off, fill out, and scan back the Boat Ramp Key Application form found on our website at www.wildwoodparkdistrict.com to bmagnini@wildwoodparkdistrict.com.  Please also scan over your DNR registration for your watercraft. Please remember to fill out both sides and please remember to write your payment information.  If residents feel more comfortable calling their payment information over the phone once the form is in, please call (847) 223-7275.
  3. Download Boat Ramp Key Application form, print, fill out, and mail via USPS your form, copy of your DNR registration, and payment.  




As a reminder, the Wildwood Park District accepts cash (no $100 bills), credit cards, and checks. 


Due to Governor Pritzker’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order, all Wildwood  Park District facilities will now be closed through May 31st.
The parks will remain open for walking, running, and biking, HOWEVER, ALL playgrounds and pavilions are CLOSED as mandated by the stay-at-home order.  For your safety and the safety of others, please do not use the playgrounds or other closed areas. We ask that anyone attending a park location follow the CDC social distancing guidelines. The Park District office will be open for boat ramp keys and resident parking stickers.  If there are any questions/inquiries or FOIA requests, please direct them to bmagnini@wildwoodparkdistrict.com. Thank you for your cooperation.
