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.

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 and newer 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 in Lakemoor you think we could find relics with your metal detectors. All artifacts will be donated to the display. Please make sure that if you are “hunting” on private property that you have permission from the land holder. Remember that we are only looking for things pertaining to Lakemoor or found in Lakemoor. If interested please click HERE to a sign up sheet for the club. Also here is a LINK to an article in the Daily Herald last week.
