50 Years of Bringing People Together

The Channahon Park District was created August 13, 1971 to manage the I & M Canal State Park in Channahon, a 12 acre park. 50 years and more than 500 acres, 19 parks and four facilities later, the Channahon Park District is proud to celebrate its 50th anniversary throughout 2021!

Check back often for updates on activities, events, specials, and more throughout 2021!



Let’s Celebrate!


Time Capsule – A Moment in Time

The Channahon Park District will be burying a time capsule later this year, to be opened in 50 years! You’re invited to share a special moment in time you’ve had at a Channahon Park District event, facility, park, camp, program or activity. We will select several shared moments in time and include them in a book that will be buried in the time capsule. Check back often, we’ll have a link available where you can share your moment!
