Parks and Walking Trails
UPDATED SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2020 FROM ORIGINAL POST ON MARCH 18, 2020
Based upon Governor Pritzker’s announcement to extend his stay-at-home order through the end of April, we will be extending the closure of all District facilities and playgrounds through April 30. While unfortunate, this is a necessary step that we must take as a District in order to minimize exposure to participants and staff and limit the spread of the virus while reducing strain on our healthcare system.
All programs, events, and rentals previously scheduled in April will be canceled. However, District parks remain open only for walking, hiking, running and biking as long as park users comply with social distancing requirements. As a reminder, playgrounds are closed.
We will continue to monitor information from local, state and national authorities to determine the next steps if we need to extend our closure beyond April 30.
