Goose control

Working towards cleaner parks.

The Park District has begun utilizing a new technique to reduce the number of geese that inhabit our parks. We will be using a noise-making device that will cause the gathered geese to take flight. The launcher does not harm the geese in any way, the noise simply encourages them to move on. The end result will be cleaner, more enjoyable parks for everyone.

This technique has been used effectively in other communities to reduce property damage, goose droppings, and aggressive behavior by geese. However, residents should be advised that they may hear fireworks-like sounds when the device is used.

Please call us at (630) 627-6100 if you have any questions or concerns.

The Oakbrook Terrace Park District is a community crime watch neighborhood. If you see any inappropriate activity or vandalism taking place in the parks, please call the police department or the DuPage County Sheriff's office immediately.

We appreciate your support in keeping our parks safe.
