The Bartlett Park District was formed by a successful public referendum vote on January 18, 1964. In 1969 the Village of Bartlett donated the first 13-acre parcel to the Park District, which was part of Sunrise Park. The District now owns 577 acres and leases another 20 acres for the recreational needs of our community. With 43 parks, a community center, two pools, two golf courses, banquet facility, ski hill, athletic field complex, nature center, and more, Bartlett is in the forefront of the Distinguished Accredited Agencies in our state, and was a National Gold Medal finalist two years in a row in 2009 and 2010.
Insurance Disclaimer: The Bartlett Park District does not carry premises medical payments insurance coverage. The BPD is subject to the Illinois Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act that provides certain immunities and defenses to claims for damages made against local public entities. Without these statutory immunities, fees associated with recreational activities, programs, properties and/or facilities could well be prohibitive.
