Glen Ellyn Park District | Established in 1919 | Glen Ellyn, Illinois

Safety Village

Renovated in 2015, there is no better place to provide your children with their essential safety education. Safety Village is a child-size town, modeled after the Glen Ellyn community, complete with buildings, sidewalks, signed intersections, streets and marked crosswalks. The facility is designed to build a foundation of safety awareness in young children in an environment they are familiar with and where they are completely safe.

The key curriculum incorporates personal, pedestrian, passenger, home and play safety in a fun atmosphere that develops confidence, self-reliance and sound decision-making abilities. Many of our recreation programs find their home in the Safety Village, including Safe Kids, Safety Village birthday parties, and Safety Village Camp.

Safety Village Camps (Summer)

The Safety Village program is designed to build a foundation of safety knowledge in young children, including personal, pedestrian, home and play safety, in a fun environment. We will help develop confidence and sound decision-making abilities regarding safe practices. Children learn how to handle specific safety situations, such as being approached by a stranger and how community workers help people. This program is based on a play philosophy. Classroom visitors, games, crafts, music, stories, films and role playing are a part of the Safety Village curriculum. Children will practice safe riding and street safety in our outdoor learning area.
