St. Charles Park District News - October 2017
Your Hive of Park District Information

It's that time of year - fall is just around the corner and the days are getting shorter. Autumn weekends can be a madhouse scramble of soccer matches and running errands - too many things to do in one 48-hour time period.

These programs are held at
Pottawatomie Community Center, 8 North Avenue, St. Charles.
