About Us
The Wildwood Park District is a local taxing agency who’s responsibility includes the oversight and maintenance of 11 parks and one community building( Rule House) in Wildwood. Information on these parks and our many recreation offerings may found by visiting this website or contacting a staff members listed below.

Mission: The Wildwood Park District, through its facilities, programs, services and personnel, seeks to enhance the quality of life and the environment; to conserve and protect natural resources; and to provide leisure time opportunities both on land and water for the benefit of its present and future citizens.

Vision: Wildwood Park District enhances the lives of its residents by providing quality recreational programming, services and facilities. The park district acts in a fiscally responsible manner through its strong administrative structure in order to conserve natural resources, improve parks and lakes and provide safe recreational opportunities in response to the need and desire of our residents.

As an unincorporated community, Wildwood does not have a village government model. For information or questions beyond those related to the parks and recreation programs, residents are asked to make specific inquiry with either Warren Township at 847-244-1101 (question may include information on garbage, roads, plowing, tax assessments, leaf pick up etc.) or the Lake County Offices at 847-377-2000 (questions may include information on building permits, building additions and changes, neighbor complaints, water and sewer, tax payments, etc.)
One of these two taxing agencies should be able to answer your questions regarding the Wildwood Community.
