Keeping Our Facilities Safe and Clean

October 12, 2020

Now more than ever, we are all conscious of staying healthy and only being in clean, safe environments. Our staff members follow strict, consistent sanitation and safety protocols to ensure you and your family are in the safest environments you can be while at our facilities. The Park District of Highland Park has also invested in new state-of-the-art air filtration systems at the Recreation Center of Highland Park, Deer Creek Racquet Club, Centennial Ice Arena, and West Ridge Center.

Our new HVAC system UV Air Filterare unlike chemical approaches to disinfection. The UV provides rapid, effective inactivation of microorganisms through a physical process. When bacteria, viruses, and protozoa are exposed to UV light, the UV energy destroys the genetic material (DNA) within, eliminating their ability to reproduce and cause infection. The UV Filter System provides continuous disinfection of the air within our facilities, lowering the concentration of mold, bacteria, and viruses. UV technology is used for indoor disinfection in hospitals, food processing, and laboratories.

We are all safe when we all work together. Keeping your Park District clean and safe, so you and your family can maintain your healthy lifestyle is our top priority.
