Facility Rentals

November 20, 2020 Update: 

As most of us are aware, the state has new mitigations to help slow the spread of COVID-19. These mitigations have a far reaching effect on businesses throughout Illinois, and Recreation and Parks agencies throughout the state have been instructed to do their part. These resurgence mitigations went into effect today, Friday, November 20 at 12:01 AM.

Under these restrictions, Recreation and Parks has cancelled/paused the majority of indoor recreation activities at this time, and all events/social gatherings that are normally held at our facilities have been cancelled/paused until further notice.

The Recreation and Parks Department has a variety of locations for you to host your next gathering. From gym rentals to parties, we have you covered!

Contact the Recreation & Parks Department at 708-748-2005 to book your next event.

VILLAGE GREEN RENTALS (Cunningham Dr. & Main St.) 
The beautiful Village Green in DownTown Park Forest is the perfect location for your outdoor event.

Whether it’s saying “I DO” to the love of your life or hosting an outdoor concert, the Village Green is meant for you. Featuring a stage, walkway and small gazebo, the Village Green has a scenic prairie garden backdrop and is closely located to the Dining on the Green banquet hall which can serve as the perfect indoor complement to your outdoor event. Contact the Recreation & Parks Department at 708-748-2005 to schedule your outdoor event today!

Newly opened in July 2018, the expanded Village Green is a space dedicated to Village residents, a public, open space to engage with one another and promote community. Landscaped entirely with native grasses, forbs and woody plants, the space is also intended to be a showcase of native landscaping and habitat. Landscape features include the Prairie Fire Garden and a garden of native fruit and nut trees. Birds, butterflies and dragonflies are already beginning to call these gardens “home” and as the gardens mature more native fauna will see these gardens as a welcome respite.
