How Quickly Do Spots Fill?

Fast! Summer is our busiest season for events and programs, so spots tend to fill quickly, especially for resident favorites like swim lessons, summer camp, and adult yoga. We recommend viewing our website and 2024 Summer Brochure (hard copy coming beginning of April and digital brochure available March 25) prior to open registration and having all your favorite events and programs picked out ahead of time so you can enroll as soon as registration opens.


Kids Culinary Class

The Wildwood Park District and Grandwood Park Park District are partnering together to offer children ages 7-12 years a six-week culinary class to help kids gain knowledge and important skills in the kitchen! Your little chef in training will make an exciting new recipe each week, exploring the best of both worlds as we incorporate cooking and baking recipes. Kids will learn practical life skills such as measuring, knife skills and safety, how to set the table, food literacy, independence, and confidence in this fun and delicious class! Make sure kids come hungry as they’ll be enjoying their creations when done! The class will be taught by Christina Marquez, owner of Twisted Sifter’s Baked Goods. *Food Allergy Disclaimer: this class is not food allergy friendly.


Please pre-register by Friday, May 31st. *No class on 7/4*.
