Van Arsdale served in the position for three years, according to the press release.
"It has been a real pleasure working with you these past three years. I admire and hold each of you in the highest of esteem," Van Arsdale wrote in a memo to staff included in the release.
According to an article from Glencoe News, park district commissioner Hilary Lee is quoted as saying Van Arsdale was asked to resign.
