The Long Grove Park District seeks to enhance and preserve the quality of life and the environment and to acquire and protect our natural lands for the benefit of our present and future residents.
In 1973 the Long Grove Park District began with this philosophical mission statement: no taxation, preservation of natural areas, retention of open space, wise stewardship of various conservancy areas and to become a depository agency of easement grants. We currently have a "no taxation" policy.
The Park District currently owns approximately 450 acres encompassing ponds and streams; wetlands and flood plans; woodlands; unique plant and wildlife habitats; trails and active recreation areas.
