The committee meets as needed and is always looking for eager volunteers. If you are interested in making new friends and beautifying Palos Park, please contact the Village Hall at 708-671-3700.

21st Annual Rid Litter Day was a success!

Thank you to all who have participated in supporting our community at this annual event.  You made a positive difference in Palos Park!  There is a lot less litter around our community thanks to your efforts.  Please continue to do your part to keep Palos Park litter free.  

If you were unable to attend Rid Litter day, but would like to clean up an area, please let the village know.  We can provide bags to be picked up at a later date.
