On January 24, 2020, Director of Recreation and Facilities Brad Wilson received the 2019 Illinois Park and Recreation Association (IPRA) Community Impact Award at the annual state park and recreation conference in Chicago. This statewide award recognizes his leadership and positive impact on the community and is given to only one park and recreation professional each year.

“Although the announcement on Friday was a surprise to Brad, It was not at all surprising to me that he was honored by our prestigious state park and recreation organizations,” said Executive Director Ray McGury. “I’ve had a front row seat watching Brad’s leadership and community impact grow over my past 11 years with the Park District. Brad is a great example of a professional leader who enjoys working with others for the greater good.”
