Community Garden Plots

Do you love to garden, but don’t have the space? We can help! The Woodridge Park District’s Community Garden site is plowed, rototilled, and sectioned off and located on 2 acres of land east of Woodridge Drive and south of Center Drive. Gardeners will provide their own seeds and equipment, maintain their plots only and must put up a fence around their plot.

Garden plot reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the ARC, 8201 S. Janes Ave., Woodridge during registration hours. The cost is $7/plot for residents and $10/plot for non-residents. Many people who rent a garden plot are Woodridge Park District Garden Club members and donate some of their produce to the West Suburban Community Pantry. Contact Kim if you interested in joining the Garden Club and/or donating produce from your garden plot.

Woodridge Community Garden Plots Unavailable in 2024

Due to the construction of a new, relocated garden plot area as part of the Town Centre Phase 2 project, Woodridge Park District Community garden plot rentals will be unavailable in 2024. Thanks to an agreement with the Downers Grove Park District, 2023 Woodridge Park District garden plot renters will be able to take advantage of Downers Grove Park District resident rates in 2024 at the Mar-Duke Farm garden plots, located at 6800 S. Main Street, between Greenbriar Medical Center and Divine Savior Church. Proof of your Woodridge garden plot rental in 2023 will be provided by the Woodridge Park District and required by the Downers Grove Park District in order to rent a garden plot at the Downers Grove Park District resident rates.

The Downers Grove Mar-Duke Farm garden plots will cost $50 for a full plot (20’ x 30’) and $40 for a half plot (20’ x 15’) and will tentatively be available for rent beginning in March 2024. More information about the 2024 Downers Grove garden plot rental season will be available soon.
