As part of the planning process for the St. Charles Park District’s 2005 Master Plan, the Park Board of Commissioners solicited the thoughts and preferences of residents through a professionally administered community survey. To respond to evolving needs, in 2007, the District appointed the Aquatics Ad hoc Advisory Committee which met over a series of months to study program and facility needs.
The St. Charles Park District recently won an Illinois Parks and Recreation Association (IPRA) Outstanding Parks & Facility Award for Otter Cove Aquatic Park. This state-of-the-art facility was a new addition to the Park District in summer 2011 and has allowed the District to expand their high quality aquatic programming even further to the people of St. Charles.
