Hanover Park District
With 21 parks and facilities, the Hanover Park District brings the community together through shared green space, seasonal events, and outdoor activities. Each park offers something slightly different; guests can game it up at Edgebrook Park's playground and basketball court, or explore nature with Ranger Park's fishing, biking trails, picnic area. During the warmer months, the Seafari Springs Aquatic Center creates watery wonderland with water slides and pools, while local garden plots encourage community members to plant fruits and vegetables. In addition to these facilities, the park district hosts a variety of events for all ages such as Day at the Park, The annual Youth Benefit Ball, and the annual 5K Dash 'N Splash, which raises funds for the district's scholarship program.
