Happy Birthday Itasca Park District!On July 25th, 1964 the Itasca Park District came to be. The referendum had652 ballots, 479 for and 161 against.
12 resident candidates ran for the 5 board positions.
The results were: Victor Dixon-President Floyd Christensen-Vice PresidentMaryann J. Niedert-SecretaryDonald Oberg-TreasurerKenneth A. Irons-Commissioner
On September 8th, 1964 the first board meeting took place at the Village Hall.
In 1966 Washington Park became the first park. In August 1970 the firstbuilding was the “Walter A. Schmidt Park and Recreation Building.”
A $400,000 referendum to build a swimming pool passed on September 19th,1970 by a vote of 675 to 320. The pool opened on May 27th, 1973.
What a difference 50 years can make. We now own 55 acres of land, have 8 park sites, have built and remodeled the Itasca Recreation & Fitness Center, ownand operate the Historical Depot Museum, have an award winning Waterpark, asoftball complex, maintenance facility, the Ray Franzen Bird Sanctuary, an
agreement for use of Hamilton soccer fields,and operate the Springbrook Nature Center.
In 2003 and 2009 IPD won the NationalGold Medal for Excellence in Parks andRecreation. That is the highest award given to park districts in the nation.
All of these accomplishments have come under only 4 Executive Directors that have taken the district towhere it is today. Our current Executive Director,Maryfran Leno, is continuously looking for ways toimprove our facilities, programming, partnerships, parks, andofferings to our residents and patrons. There is alwayssomething in the works.
Everyone is invited to partake in the celebration of our50th birthday on July 25th at the Waterpark. So puton your party hats and get ready to eat cake!
