The Western Springs Recreation department's mission is to provide the residents of Western Springs and surrounding communities with healthy, creative and learning experiences whereby people can meet, share and unite in a community of common interests and ideas; and to provide aesthetically pleasing, safe and properly maintained facilities for programs and activities.

The front desk, located at the Recreation Center, is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM-4:30 PM. Call us at (708) 246-9070.
