Summer of Music

We are excited to announce a collaboration between the Zion Park District and the Winthrop Harbor Parks and Recreation Department to enhance activities and the overall recreational experience in both communities. 

As part of our collaboration efforts, we have jointly created the Summer of Music Series to advertise the free music series in both communities. We hope to allow area residents to enjoy our parks with some music throughout the summer months. 

Our events are fun and festive gathering opportunities for family, friends, and neighbors to enjoy good company and live music. We hope our collaboration efforts will provide our communities with an opportunity to continue building our great neighborly relationships.
