Inside the gym at the Bucktown Apple Pie Contest

The Bucktown Apple Pie Contest is just one of many events we organize every year to raise money for the park.

Register for Spring Classes

Spring Online Registration takes place on Tuesday, February 24th at 9:00 a.m., but don’t wait until then to visit the Chicago Park District website. You can view available programs and set up a wish list starting on Monday, February 9th. If you haven’t yet set up or updated your account on the new registration system, this would be a great time to do it. Programs fill up fast, and updating your account now means you won’t be delayed when you’re trying to register.

Friends of Holstein Park: Advisory Council

Looking to get more involved in your neighborhood? Join us at the Advisory Council meeting of the Friends of Holstein Park on February 17th. At the January 20th meeting, attendees heard a presentation from a representative of the Chicago Park District about our upcoming Field House renovation. Construction is expected to begin after Labor Day and the main renovation components include updated locker rooms, a family bathroom, 2 new program rooms, a new roof, and pool filter replacement. More information will be available in March.

At our monthly meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, we discuss and plan events that we would love for our community to enjoy. Come, join us and learn how you can get involved! For our Apple Pie Contest and Circus in the Parks to continue this year, we need Chairs/Co-Chairs to lead those community events. Please contact us if you are interested!
