Help Me Play Fund
This fund was established to provide funding for kids who cannot afford admission fees for activities such as: zip lining, snow boarding or golfing at Alpine Hills, visiting Magic Waters or Nicholas Conservatory, taking a ride on the Trolley or Forest City Queen, riding horses or taking a hay ride at Lockwood Park, or wakeboarding at the new West Rock Wake Park at Levings Lake.

Shining a light on Music Shell's equipment needs
In order to maintain the tradition of providing quality entertainment, the Park District is in need of replacing the sound and lighting system at the Music Shell as it is nearing the end of its natural life. The current sound system was installed in 2001 and current lighting system was installed in 1982.
The sound system will be replaced with state-of-the-art digital technology that will provide a better listening experience. The lighting will be replaced with LED lighting that will be more energy efficient. The cost to purchase a new sound system and lighting is approximately $65,000-$80,000. The Rockford Park District Foundation is also pursuing grants that will help offset the cost of new equipment.
