East Side — Pheasant Run Trails, Pheasant Run Court and the area formally known as Pheasant Run Resort & Convention Center.
Northwest Side — The northern portion of Thornwood Subdivision in South Elgin which includes the following streets: Courtland Drive, Oakview Court, West Ellington Court, and East Ellington Court.

Smoke-Free Parks Policy
The Park Board has determined that it is in the best interest of the health, safety and welfare of all persons using Park District property, including all outdoor parks, facilities, buildings and vehicles, that smoking is prohibited. This prohibition on smoking, including vaping, in outdoor parks shall not apply to parking lots, personally-owned vehicles and the Pottawatomie Golf Course.
Photo and Video Policy
Photos and videos are often taken of people participating in SCPD programs and activities. All persons registering for an SCPD program or using public park properties or facilities thereby agree that any photograph or videotape taken by SCPD may be used in publicizing and promoting SCPD including its electronic/social media, videotapes, brochures, flyers and other publications without additional, prior notice or permission and without compensation to the participant. Staff does not use any identification in marketing materials. Persons on public property who do not want to be photographed or videotaped should tell the photographer.
Carry In/Carry Out Leave No Trace Etiquette
The parks belong to everyone! Help keep parks and facilities clean. All guests are asked to remove garbage and recyclables during each visit.
In the 2021 community survey, 85% of respondents indicated supporting the collection of garbage and recyclables at large outdoor locations as the amount of garbage and recyclables impacts maintenance time, critter control (rodents, raccoons, etc.), park beautification and overall costs.
Thanks for supporting this new initiative.
