Live Your Best Life At Home!

During this unprecedented time, we, at the Geneva Park District, want to ensure you are living your BEST LIFE!  We are bringing all the energy and excitement direct to you and your family in a virtual way!  You will find a variety of activities and resources that will keep you smiling, active, and making memories while you follow the Stay at Home Order. You can also check the Geneva Park District Facebook page for additional activities.

REMINDER: It is essential when using our parks, green spaces, and trails that all guidelines are followed, especially social distancing. Be Smart. Stay 6 Feet Apart! The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) created a great info-graphic as a reference.  You will notice signs posted at several of our trails, as a reminder to all users.
