Life: Be In It. This was the motto that used to hang outside the Schaumburg Park District building on Springinsguth Road in the 1980s.
I remember going there for open gym and shooting hoops with the older guys. There were, and still are, a lot of gym rats. The Park District offers a wide variety of activities for all ages, including soccer, tennis, gymnastics, etc.
It is a special place for me because of all the after school activities that I did there. It's a great alternative to the street and runnin' with thugs and drugs.
If you are in the area, then you should definitely get involved or get your young ones in an activity.
