Day Trips

Take a trip with the Dundee Township Park District and meet some new friends along the way! Adults 50+ years are invited to enjoy trips together, including new experiences, special events, restaurants, persformances, and some overnight trips to exciting locations. We often explore the city of Chicago, suburban areas, and even nearby states. Call for a list of upcoming trips.

Day Trip Refund Policy

Because we must finalize full payment six weeks prior to our event, the following procedures are always in place: If you must cancel your day trip, we will do our best to find a replacement. When a replacement is found, our Park District will issue a full refund. If we do not find a replacement, we are unable to refund your money. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
