The Des Plaines Park District is governed by a five-member volunteer Board of Commissioners who are elected
at-large for six-year terms. The Board is responsible for policy-making decisions that affect the delivery of leisure services to
the community. The day-to-day operations of the Park District are the responsibility of the staff.
