Skokie Sports Park, Pooch Park, Channelside Park and the Dammrich Rowing Center programs
- Skokie Sports Park, Pooch Park, Channelside Park and the Dammrich Rowing Center are situated on property leased from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. As part of the lease agreement the Skokie Park District is prohibited from charging non-resident fees. Thus all fees and charges at these facilities are the same for residents and non-residents.
