Park District of La Grange COVID-19 Update 4/2/20

While there have been no reported cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) at the district, the health, safety, and well-being of our patrons and staff is our priority.

Governor Pritzker officially extended the "Stay-at-Home" Executive Order ‪through April 30, 2020. Due to the new extension, the Park District of La Grange will continue to keep all facilities and playgrounds closed until further notice as a public health precaution. ‬

This will indefinitely impact the remainder of our spring programs. Staff is assessing which shall be cancelled, rescheduled and/or delayed, and will process refunds accordingly for programs that are cancelled. Since there is much to do, we respectfully ask for your patience while the staff works through this administrative process.

We miss seeing our community members and friends! As a Park District, this is particularly hard since we are all about getting people together for exercise, play, entertainment and so much more.

As per the Illinois “Stay-at-Home” Executive Order, our parks will remain open however individuals must comply with Social Distancing Requirements. Please observe the CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from other individuals at all times. If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location or depart that space. Since playgrounds may increase the spread of COVID-19, they will remain closed.

The National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) has also put out a statement about parks and open space use during these uncertain times.Joint Statement on Using Parks and Open Space While Maintaining Physical Distancing.

The Park District will continue monitoring developments closely and will update our plans for resuming operations and other related details on our website, accordingly for questions and concerns please send all inquiries to ‪pdlginfo@pdlg.org.‬

We thank everyone for your understanding, patience, and cooperation during this uncertain and unprecedented time. The health, safety, and well-being of our patrons and staff is our priority.

We ask that you follow CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of illness.
