As of Friday, June 11, Illinois has moved to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan, and the Streamwood Park District is thrilled to begin the transition back to pre-pandemic operations.

It has been an extremely long and taxing 1 year, 2 months, and 29 days (455 days in total, but who’s counting) since we posted that COVID-19 had reached our community with the shutting down of facilities, programs, and events.  

As the Streamwood Park District navigated through the fluidly changing phases of the Restore Illinois plan, the District was committed to providing ample opportunities for the community to recreate. Whether it was virtual storytime with Ms. Robin, unplugging from the electronics in our lives and taking walks through our wonderful parks, joining our socially distant outdoor group fitness classes, or helping Park Pride Day reach all-time volunteer records, our resilient residents showed up.

The Board and staff of the Streamwood Park District thank you for the patience and continued support you exhibited as we all endured this unprecedented time together. It has been an honor and privilege to serve you each and every day. 

While some aspects of the District will no longer have capacity limits, it’s important to note that many programs, events, and classes involve children 12 or under who are unable to be vaccinated. Therefore,  masks and social distancing are still required in those situations. Please see below for a list of program and facility-related updates as it relates to Phase 5.
