I Love Mokena: Park District a Community Anchor
This week's I Love Mokena looks at the Mokena Community Park District and just a few of the great facilities it operates.
One thing that anchors a great community is a successful recreational organization. In Mokena we are fortunate to have a tremendous park district.
The Mokena Community Park District provides recreational facilities and activities for our beautiful village and the surrounding area. It is a separate taxing district and operates independently from other government organizations in Mokena.
The district consists of 21 facilities including the spectacular Oaks Recreation and Fitness Center on LaPorte Road. The Oaks Center is home to a state of the art fitness center, basketball courts, indoor track, exercise and conference rooms, kitchen and other multi-purpose and party rooms. It is one of the southwest suburbs recreational jewels.
Organized events and activities play a big part in the success of the Mokena Park District. The district's event calendar is jam-packed with a diverse schedule of classes, trips, fests, outdoor movie nights, tournaments and many, many other popular venues.
Local athletic groups such youth baseball, football, cheer leading, soccer and others also utilize the park district's well maintained fields and buildings.
Another crown jewel owned by MCPD is Yunker Farm at the corner of Schoolhouse and LaPorte Roads. It is a fantastic site right in the middle of Mokena. The park district is constantly coming up with unique and interesting ways for residents to enjoy the Yunker Farm property.
The Mokena Community Park District, yet one more reason to love Mokena.
