more on Sycamore Park District

The Sycamore Park District has experienced exponential growth over the last two years which has brought residents a community center, dog park, splashpad and sled hill. With a soccer complex nearing completion and one trail connection finished with the $2,000,000 bid just awarded for the second of three, total trail segments to be constructed, the district is on a fast track to becoming a DeKalb County leader in parks and recreation. Additionally, the golf course is just about to complete an overall replacement of its irrigation system, and we just received and OSLAD Grant to add six more ball diamonds in our district! It’s an exciting time for Sycamore! It is also an exciting time for a process driven leader with strategic planning skills to move the district into a new era of recreational opportunities and services. If you are looking for a chance to serve a great community and be a visionary for the park district this is a great opportunity for you!

The Sycamore Park District Board of Commissioners seeks an Executive Director whose financial skills can help these new facilities reach their full potential and whose communication and leadership skills guide a growing staff to be the best it can be. Four hardworking (yet fun) superintendents are experts in their areas who love being a part of the positive impact the park district has on Sycamore. Supportive residents are proud of the district’s recent growth and appreciate the open lines of communication and quality customer service throughout the agency.

Just like Sycamore itself, the new park district director must be friendly, approachable, and ready to be actively engaged with the community. Sycamore’s strength is teamwork with individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and units of local government working together so that all can thrive. But, don’t let Sycamore’s small-town charm fool you – there are great things happening and lots to do!

In addition to a responsive park district, a vibrant business community, a great school district, an engaged library, nearby Northern Illinois University, and the DeKalb County History Center all come together to truly make Sycamore a place where “Life offers more!”
