Our Mission
Friends of the Round Lake Area Parks Foundation is dedicated to beautifying the community and improving the quality of life in the Round Lake Area. This is accomplished by funding, promoting, developing and implementing recreational, educational and conservation programs and facilities of the Round Lake Area Park District.

About the Friends of the Round Lake Area Parks Foundation
The Friends of the Round Lake Area Parks Foundation provides residents and businesses the opportunity to join as partners with the Round Lake Area Park District to improve the quality of life in our community.

The Foundation conducts programs and events to raise funds to help offset costs of many projects that may otherwise not be funded. These projects have included playground renovations, Special Olympic sport uniforms, capital building improvements to facilities and summer camp scholarships.

Programs that the Foundation runs include a Superhero Fun Run and Frosty Footrace.
