Yep, it's true, Rockford Park District has just been named one of the Healthiest Companies in America. That's a pretty big feat, Rockford Park District really cares about their employees and their community and it really shows. They really encourage employees to maintain and achieve their wellness goals. They have so many different programs, like a bicycle voucher program, Wellness University classes, annual benefits and wellness fair, employee weight loss competitions and a whole lot more.

All that, and they help the quality of life for our citizens here. Great parks that help property values and a beautiful park system for when we want to get out and enjoy our surroundings. This is the 5th straight year that Rockford Park District has received this award. I am happy to say we have some of the cleanest and most beautiful parks I've ever seen.
