Letter from the Director: Winter/Spring 2018

I am honored to inform you that the Barrington Park District and the Junior Womens Club received the distinguished “Partnership Award“ for the Freddie Herriman Pederson Splashpad. This award was presented at the Illinois Association of Park Districts Best of the Best Gala Awards dinner in Wheeling and recognizes our outstanding contributions and extraordinary efforts to improve the Barrington Community. Together, we are helping to make Barrington a better place to live, work and play. Have you ever heard of, or played, Pickleball? It’s a fun and fast growing sport that anyone can play. Pickleball is a racquet/paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. On April 7, we are hosting a one-day pickleball tournament, “Pickled Eggs”. This tournament is for Pickleball players in the area to get to know each other through a friendly, all levels/ages, competitive, non-sanctioned tournament. See page 70 or contact Kent Hengels at (847) 304-5273 for more information.

Our Fitness Center will soon be launching an online fitness and nutritional aid program paired with Fitbit. This will help our members see the results they are looking for and create an environment of healthy eating choices. Please contact Adrianne at (847) 304-5274 to learn more about this exciting program.

There’s something for everyone here at the Park District. Stop in or call us anytime!
