Kick off the holiday season with a new magical family event at Park Center. The Festival of Trees features a dazzling display of whimsical trees decorated by local businesses, organizations and community members!

Join us by sponsoring and decorating a tree or by purchasing event tickets. Either way, a portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to the Glenview Park District Leisureship Fund, which provides recreation program scholarships for children in our community.
