Park Avenue Boating Facility Remains Closed for Season

5/14/20 – Park Avenue gates remain closed to vehicular traffic; however, Park Avenue is open for walking and running. Individuals should “Keep Moving” and be mindful of proper social distancing.

The City of Highland Park and the Park District of Highland Park have determined that Park Avenue Boating Facility will not be open to any water activity at this time. The Park District and City are in daily communication as it pertains to the impact of COVID-19 on the community. Due to the first-responder emphasis on COVID-19 matters and modified staffing levels, the City reported public safety concerns if sailing or powerboating was available.

The Park District will remain in communication with the North Shore Yacht Club and boating community regarding season boat storage and launch passes as changes to facility access become available.
