Provided by a partnership between The Glenview Park Foundation, Glenview Youth Services and the Glenview Park District, recreation leisureships are available throughout the year to those families who find it difficult or otherwise impossible to register their children for park district programs due to financial constraints. Types of leisureships offered include:

  • Payment Plans which allow participants to spread the payment of a program fee over a period of time
  • Partial Leisureships which allow participants to pay a reduced fee for a program

The type of leisureship granted will be determined on an individual basis according to need. To receive more information or apply for a recreation leisureship call Alison Frye of Glenview Youth Services at 847-724-2620. Leisureship applications, park district brochures and program registration forms are available at Park Center, 2400 Chestnut Ave., or Glenview Youth Services, 3080 W. Lake Ave. Applications for leisureships must be returned, along with a completed registration form, to the Glenview Youth Services office at 3080 West Lake Ave.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to support the leisureship program, please send a check payable to Glenview Park District to: Glenview Park District Youth Leisureship Fund, 1930 Prairie Street, Glenview, IL 60025.
