Today the Capitol was filled with the sights and sounds of local and state parks, provided in displays from 40 park districts, forest preserves, conservation, recreation and special recreation agencies throughout the state, demonstrating how their agencies provide positive impact on Illinois’ economy and quality of life.

Parks Day at the Capitol is an annual public awareness event where members of the Illinois Association of Park Districts can show off their facilities and programs and meet with their legislators to talk about the importance of funding for their outreach. The agencies’ exhibits typically include literature, giveaways and/or hands-on activities for attendees.

The Illinois Association of Park Districts (IAPD), headquartered in Springfield, has been serving park districts, forest preserves, conservation and recreation agencies since 1928. The IAPD is the oldest and most successful statewide association of its kind in the nation. As a grass-roots organization, IAPD's voice for parks, recreation and conservation is strong and respected throughout Illinois and the United States.
