Things to Do

In this culturally rich historic village, there’s plenty to keep the family occupied. Explore Safari Land’s thrilling rides and Paradise Bay Water Park’s fun slides, and visit one of the most beautiful parks in Lombard: Lilacia Park. With its gorgeous variety of lilacs and tulips, it’s only natural that this floral paradise is home to its namesake festival, the highly anticipated Lilacia Festival! Overflowing with food, drinks, glitzy concerts, and tours, this festival’s highlight is usually the coronation of the Lilac Queen and Princess. The festival is topped off with a splendid parade finale.

Play baseball in the summer with friends and colleagues at Sunset Knoll Recreation Center and Park and enjoy a picnic with everyone on the grass. If you have kids, you can bring them over to the splash pad or get sledding down the small hills. Grab some snacks and catch a movie under the stars at Lombard Park District’s Movies in the Park event. Just make sure to bring your blanket along in case it gets a little cold out at night!

Wouldn’t it be nice to pack a picnic basket, your tackle box, poles, and bucket for a morning of fishing at The Fishing Derby? Trophies will be awarded for the biggest, smallest, and most caught fish categories for both Youths and Adults, and your kids can fish and compete at a smaller pond.
