Grow your own fresh, organic produce!

Do you love to garden, but don't have the space at home? We can help!

garden plot The Lisle Park District's Community Garden Plots are located on the southwest corner of River Road Park at Maple Avenue and River Road. All plots are tilled by the park district, except five rows that are set aside for gardeners who prefer to till themselves. Each plot is 10' x 15'.

The plots are all marked in the center with a wooden stake labeled with the corresponding plot identification. The center identification stakes are intended to be permanent, please do not remove it. The four corners of each 10’ by 15’ plot are marked with wooden stakes. When conditions allow, the tilled plots (numbers 1-40) will be tilled at the conclusion of the program. The remaining plots (numbers 41-100) will not be tilled. These untilled plots are for those gardeners who prefer to till their own plot(s). If gardeners wish to amend their plot(s) by planting seeds, they must understand that when tilling occurs during off-season, any amendments added may be dispersed to other plots.

The Lisle Park District will try to accommodate gardeners who wish to continue to use the same plots by offering advance registration, but the park district reserves the right to reassign plots from one season to the next.

Parking is allowed on the east side of River Road for pull-in parking only. If the lot is full, please be mindful of surrounding neighbors. Illegal parking will not be tolerated. Please be aware of muddy conditions when pulling into the plots. Do not drive into the plots area when the ground is wet!

Rental Fees

2022 Season Plot Size Resident Fee Nonresident Fee Refundable Security Deposit*
April 1 - November 1 10' x 15' $45 $65 $50

*There is a strict no refund policy for the garden plots fee. Each garden plot requires a $50 security deposit check that will be returned only if our rules are followed. All fencing, vegetative matter and personal belongings must be removed.
