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.

Sign up for the Village E-Newsletter HERE. This is a great source of information that we send out regarding upcoming events, and village news to our residents and anyone that is interested in “What’s Up” in Lakemoor.

As the Parks and Recreation Coordinator I am trying to determine the age groups of our residents to try and come up with more activities based on the counts within the age groups. For example this will show me if the age groups for Soccer and T-ball might need to change based on the ages of our children. Also other events might be impacted as well. Please take a quick moment and complete the SURVEY. The survey is totally anonymous and I will not be gathering any information other than ages. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Here are the links to the upcoming events: LINK  LINK

 Lakemoor Historical Group

I am the Parks and Recreation Coordinator for the Village of Lakemoor. I am trying to form a Lakemoor Historical Group. What I am looking for are any old items that you might posse relating to the Village that you would be willing to donate to a display case that we would like to have once the new village hall is completed.

I am also trying to form a group of “Treasure Hunters” to comb the fields, parks, beaches, and anywhere you think we could find relics with your metal detectors. All artifacts will be donated to the display. If interested please click HERE to a sign up sheet for the club.


Lily Lake Fish Stocking Donation

Back in May the Village teamed up with local fisherman to help restock Lily Lake due to the winter kill of 2013-2014. We were able to purchase 260 largemouth bass in varying sizes. We have an opportunity to purchase addition fish again through the McHenry-Lake County Conservation District in September and we are looking for your help in taking on the task. If you would like to donate any money to this cause it would be greatly appreciated. Here is a LINK for you to use if you would like to donate. Your donation is tax deductible and would help us in bringing back the lake to where it was several years ago. Donations must be received by September 1st so we can get our order in on time.

If you are at least 17 years old, 16 years old with a signed Red Cross parental/guardian consent form where state permits, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in good health, you may be eligible to give blood.
