Board of Commissioners
The Board of Commissioners is ultimately accountable for everything that happens at the Rockford Park District. They are five people who are elected to serve six-year terms, and volunteer their time to serve because they care deeply about the community and want to preserve the Rockford Park District's legacy.
They believe parks and recreation are essential to quality of life in the Rockford Park District, resulting in a high return on investment of available resources. The Rockford Park District believes recreation is vital to people's health and well-being, and plays an important role in a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
