Update: New Facility Openings and In-Person Programs

5/29/20 – We are happy to announce, starting today, the Park District will begin to reopen some of our facilities within the Phase 3 guidelines of the Governor’s Restore Illinois Reopening Plan. In addition to our virtual programs, we are now offering modified in-person programs, mini-camps, and fitness programs. The Park District will continue to operate within the parameters of the Governor’s Executive Order and Reopening Plan to fulfill our mission of providing recreation opportunities for our community.  Please keep in mind that all our planned reopening dates and guidelines are subject to change based on safety guidelines and timing provided by the State of Illinois.

We understand that an essential part of being healthy includes staying active, and we appreciate your patience as we safely reopen the Park District.  For a complete listing of our facility and program status, click here.
