Welcome to the Alsip Park District!

Redevelopment of Apollo Park
The Alsip Park District Board of Commissioners has approved to move forward with the redevelopment of Apollo Park including the submission of an OSLAD (Open Space Land Acquisition and Development) Grant. Please join us on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 6:30 pm at the Apollo Park, 12521 South Kostner to provide input on this project. The meeting will take place under the shelter, in the event of inclement weather the meeting will be held indoors at the Apollo Recreation Center. The grant application is due July 1 and if successful, construction could begin in early 2017.

Cal-Sag Trail
We have pavement! The Alsip Park District's west end segment of the Cal-Sag Trail has been paved. Guard rails, fencing and landscape are scheduled to be completed soon but to see pavement makes us happy:)

A Ribbon Cutting and Festivities are scheduled to be held on Saturday, June 6. For additional information or to pre-order tickets for the Grand Opening, click on the link below:

Bike the Sag-Family and Cycling Enthusiast Bike Ride
June 6th 10am-3p
Bike the Sag Bike Ride is a brand new annual event that brings families and cyclists together in a fun, active way. Enjoy the brand new trail that was recently constructed along the Cal-Sag. The western segment runs from Alsip in the east to Lemont in the west. On June 6, riders will check in and bike from Chicago Christian High School at the corner of Oak Park Ave and Rt. 83 to the Lake Katherine Nature Center to join the Friends of the Cal Sag as they have the official ribbon cutting for the western segment at 11am. After that, riders can choose to ride to Palos Park, Alsip, and Camp Saginaw. Ride lengths will depend on each rider and can vary from 3 to 20 miles. After your ride, join us for the post race party back at CCHS to enjoy a lunch, DJ, Bike Rodeo, and several local businesses with special offers. Your whole day is an open house and you can choose to stay as short or long as you want. The first 200 pre-registered bikers will receive a swag bag at check-in. Pre-registration is highly encouraged.
