At the Roselle Park District two of the main components of our mission is to improve the quality of life in the community through the provision of parks and open space. We believe we are the keepers of the parks for future generations and strive to protect and enhance the environment and natural resources of our community. We promote responsible planning, practices, and resource allocation in hopes to inspire the community through example.
Trees & Urban Canopy
The Roselle Park District currently cares for and manages 1,500 trees throughout our park system and recognizes the services and function that trees provide as a collective asset to the entire community. With this in mind the District has adopted, through ordinance, a Tree Protection Policy with the goal of protecting, preserving, and planting of trees in the community.
Natural Area Restoration
As a part of the District's commitment to parks and open space, the District is working to restore the health and diversity of natural areas. Restoration work involves removing invasive trees and plants to allow a variety of native trees and plants to grow and thrive. Restoration may also include planting native or desirable trees and plants, grading, erosion control, and other improvements depending on location. Some current sites of review include:
- Goose Lake South
- Goose Lake North
- Engel Park
- Chatburg Park
