Enhance your life while giving back to the community through service opportunities. We invite you to become a volunteer for the Woodridge Park District. Volunteers are essential to the success of our programs. Any amount of time that you can afford to give will be greatly appreciated.

Volunteers make a difference! More than one quarter of a million people annually donate their time and expertise as volunteers for park and recreation programs and services, saving taxpayers millions of dollars in personnel costs. Thank you for your support!
