The Burr Ridge Community Park Foundation was incorporated in 2008 by a group of individuals dedicated to making the Burr Ridge Park District's parks and programs the best they can be. The foundation supports the Park District by combining monetary donations with time and energy in order to nurture community spirit, protect and preserve open space, and promote the health and welfare of residents. To date, we have raised over $75,000 in response to this mission.


Monies raised have supplemented the park district's aquatic programs including the wetlands and splash pad projects at Harvester Park and the revitalization at Woods Pool.  Our most recent and largest project, the Harvester Park Adult Fitness Court, is now open and providing an exciting, open-air workout experience.   Check it out!  We are currently continuing to develop plans to increase fitness opportunities for teens and adults.  The foundation also provides financial assistance in hardship situations for participation in park programs.


Last September, we hosted our fourth annual Pedal the Parks bike tour attracting close to 150 riders of all ages. Participants enjoyed a 10 mile tour through 4 of our most beautiful parks and a closing party with breakfast and entertainment. This year we are adding a KOM competition to give the experienced cyclists the opportunity to conquer Mad Wall.  We are excited to carry on this event!  Also, look for us at Harvest Fest.


By working closely with the Burr Ridge Park District, the Foundation plans to identify projects that will expand recreational facilities and opportunities, and develop environmental initiatives. The Foundation is looking for members interested in helping achieve our vision. For more information about volunteering, contact Barb Dohrman at 630-920-1969 or email us at foundation@brparks.org.
