Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Are you thinking summer yet? An important step in welcoming the warmer months is coming soon: The Park Forest Recreation and Parks Department will hold its Annual Park Permit Lottery on Saturday, February 2, 2019, beginning at 9 a.m. at Park Forest’s Village Hall, 350 Victory Drive.

Please check-in between 8:30 am-8:45 am.

A State ID is required to obtain a permit.

The event is held each year to allow members of the public the opportunity to secure their preferred Park Forest park on their preferred date.

Two separate lotteries will be held for Park Forest residents and non-Park Forest residents. This system is designed to allow Park Forest residents priority selection in what has become a popular lottery event, with an increasing number of non-Park Forest residents participating in the process.

The Park Permit Lottery for Park Forest residents will begin at 9 am. Please bring a State ID to verify Park Forest residency.

The lottery for non-Park Forest residents will immediately follow the Park Forest resident lottery.

Please note that individuals are restricted to one picnic date per person. Full payment is due at time of reserving a permit. No phone orders will be accepted.
