Dog Park Opens at Katz Park
The DeKalb Park District has converted one of the four softball fields at Katz Park into a dog park. Katz Park is located on Dresser Road, east of DeKalb High School. The dog park is divided into areas for big dogs and smaller dogs and allows visitors to unleash their dog in a fenced in area. Dog owners may bring their dogs to the park during regular park hours (7:00am-dusk). We ask that people pick up after their dogs and follow the posted rules.
Nature Trail: During the November 14, 2013 board meeting the DeKalb Park District Board of Commissioners awarded work to Elliott & Wood Inc. to perform improvements on the Nature Trail Trestle Bridge abutments. Due to winter weather, the work has been postponed until further notice. For information please call: 815-739-5928. To view the full scope of the bridge abutment project...click here.

Pool Consideration Committee Needs Your Input!
The DeKalb Park District recently formed an ad hoc Pool Consideration Committee. The mission of the committee is to review information, analyze data, and consider public input to provide a final report to the Park Board.
The committee is currently comprised of two Park Board members, and a mixture of staff, pool users, and community members. The committee recognizes that public input and dialog is essential to giving sound recommendations to the Park Board. The public is invited and encouraged to attend committee meetings. Each meeting will follow an agenda with time set aside for public input.
Meetings will be held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 6:30pm on the 2nd floor of the Hopkins Park Community Center.
For those who cannot attend the meetings and/or would like to provide additional input can click on the email image to the right or send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: All emails sent to this address may be read during public meetings and are considered public record.
To provide diverse, high quality, active and passive recreational facilities and services to all residents of DeKalb.
