Northfield Parks Foundation

The Northfield Parks Foundation was formed in 2001 with the goal of supporting the Park District in the delivery of recreation programs, services and facilities as well as providing healthy recreational events for the Northfield community. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $1 million through community mailings and community golf outings. These funds have been used to renovate Clarkson Park (The Heart of Northfield), and Willow Park (Where We All Love to Play).
