Welcome to the Village of Lakemoor Parks & Recreation Website. Our mission is to provide residents and visitors with clean, green, safe, and accessible open space park land throughout the Village. The Village operates neighborhood and community parks. Facilities at developed local parks vary from site to site, and include combinations of athletic fields, picnic areas and shelters, sitting areas and play equipment. Our number one priority is satisfying and serving the recreational needs of our residents and visitors to our parks. With this in mind, every employee of our Village works hard every day to accomplish these goals. We value your input regardless of the message; good or bad. If you have any suggestions on how we can do a better job of providing these services and programs please contact us at Village Hall (815) 385-1117 or email villagehall@lakemoor.net.

 Youth Baseball and Soccer Survey

We have received some inquiries regarding having a Baseball or Soccer program for older children. If you are interested in something like this please click on this brief SURVEY so I can gather your responses.


  Sports Sponsorships Needed

We are seeking financial assistance for our youth T-ball and youth Soccer programs. One of our goals is to have more children getting outside and playing sports. We have seen a decline in the number of children participating in group sports and would like to help families that can’t afford to play sports be able to play and also to help with the rising costs associated with team sports. Our second goal is to expand the types of sports we can offer here in Lakemoor and we cannot do that without financial resources. With your donation, Lakemoor Parks and Recreation can make these goals a reality.  If you are interested in sponsoring a team or making a donation this year please click HERE.


ATTENTION LAKEMOOR RESIDENTS

The Village of Lakemoor and the Lakemoor Walgreens have teamed up to offer the residents of Lakemoor the opportunity to purchase an emergency weather alert radio at a reduced price. This radio normally sells for $35.99, but for our residents the cost would only be $29.99. All you need to do is stop by the Village Hall and show proof of residency, pick up a voucher, then take it to the Lakemoor Walgreens and purchase your radio. It’s that simple. One of the most important things that you can have as part of your emergency safety kit is a weather radio. The National Weather Service provides the forecasts and severe weather alerts that you hear on it. With an all hazards weather radio, you not only get the latest severe weather information, but it lets you know about environmental and public safety emergencies like amber alerts and chemical spills. A great reason to have one of these radios is the battery backup. That means if severe weather strikes and the power goes out, it may be the only way for you to find out the latest weather information. Another great thing about this particular radio is that you can program it for just the county you live in or the county you live in plus all of the surrounding counties.
