New Fall Fun at Bolingbrook Park District

Fall checklist:

  • Get Halloween Costume
  • Test it out at Freaky Fun Friday while you check out some parrots, bird of prey, s’mores by the fire, walk the monster hunt and trick or treat trail, and eat s’mores by the fire.
  • Swim around Pelican Harbor Indoor Aquatic Park to pick your pumpkin then decorate it
  • Shoot said pumpkin with an arrow after Halloween.

Yes, when Halloween is over, instead of waiting for your pumpkin to rot on your doorstep, shoot it with an arrow! On Sunday, November 1 from noon-2:00 pm, destroy your pumpkins as a family by shooting it with an arrow at our first-ever Pumpkin Shoot!  Our staff at Hidden Oaks Nature Center will teach you to shoot the bow and arrow, then you get to shoot your pumpkin!

Just $1 per arrow on-site (cash only) or $5 in advance for 10 arrows. All the money goes to help feed the animal residents at Hidden Oaks Nature Center.  Register online at  This program is just one of the many fall/Halloween-themed events coming up at Bolingbrook Park District. Here’s a list of what you can do for fun!
