Landscape Maintenance

The mission of the Landscape Maintenance Department is to provide a safe, clean and aesthetically inviting environment for users of the Forest Preserves, and to continually promote best practices for the preservation and public appreciation of outdoor and public spaces.

The Landscape Maintenance Department is responsible for ground and facility maintenance, including maintaining picnic groves, mowing the grounds, repairing asphalt, landscape beautification, removing refuse, plowing parking lots, installing signage, and assisting in setting-up and breaking down special events at the groves and pavilions. In addition to maintenance operations, the department provides support to inter-departmental programming, activities, rentals and special events.
