Our Mission

The Friends of Lake Forest Parks & Recreation Foundation (Friends) was established to promote excellence in our parks and recreation system by helping build beautiful parks, make improvements, and expand recreational programs and activities.

It is our mission to facilitate the growth, development and improvement of the Lake Forest Parks and Recreation facilities and offerings to the community.


Activities: 

Provide an organization that helps to manage and execute the vision of philanthropic donors to the community. 

To identify and promote philanthropic opportunities for community members to support via donations that are focused on parks and recreation facilities and activities. (The creation of the 10-year Strategic Master Plan for the City of Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Department is an example.) 

To raise money via donations and community events such as the July 4th Celebration, the Tree Lighting celebration, Christmas events and the Fall festival event, among others to fund various programs for the Parks and Recreation department. 

To support this Parks and Rec department by providing program scholarships to families with financial limitations. 

To assist the city and donors to the city execute their philanthropic goals if needed. (The construction of the comfort station at the Deerpath golf course is a recent example.) 

To promote the Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Department and our city's beautiful natural environment through activities that boost awareness and connect the community.


Each year, thousands of Lake Forest residents enjoy our community parks, recreation facilities, and over 500 programs and activities offered by the Recreation Department. In response to a growing desire for more beautiful parks and additional recreation programs, the charitable, non-profit Friends of Lake Forest Parks & Recreation Foundation was established in 2000 as a 501 (c) (3) organization. Support from corporate partners also plays an important role in helping the Friend's reach their goal of enhancing the lives of our Lake Forest residents.
