[September 23, 2020]   In light of the new extended stay-at-home order, the Lincoln Park District has determined that it is in the best interest of our community, members, and staff to remain closed through Sunday, May 31st, 2020 with the goal of reducing the spread of the coronavirus in our local community.

We hope to reopen on Monday, June 1st, 2020 but with limitations. We will be sharing those limitations as we get closer to reopening. The phasing of reopening for our facility will rely on information from various sources but our main priority is the community and serving you, safely!

We have decided to cancel our youth summer softball, baseball, and tee ball leagues. Our women’s softball league will also be cancelled this summer. Taking into consideration information from the CDC and looking into the future phases of reopening America, we felt it was best to cancel our leagues for this summer. We want to keep the children, their families, and our staff safe during these times. If your child is registered for our summer softball, baseball, or tee ball program, you will be issued a refund or be able to apply that credit toward another program/ membership at the Park District.

We will be making phone calls in the next 7-10 business days to issue these refunds. Please be on the watch for a phone call from 217-732-8770 if you registered your child for any of these programs. We hope that you will continue to be patient with us as we prepare for these changes.

Our Aquatic Center and the Fourth of July Fireworks Event will be discussed in more detail at our next board meeting on Wednesday, May 13th, 2020.

If you’re a member of the Park District for our Fit Zone, your membership will be extended for the period of time that we are closed. We understand this is a difficult time and that these circumstances have been unforeseen. Please continue to check our website or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to be notified about updates in the future.

We appreciate your patience during this time. If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you!

Abby O’Brien, Executive Director, Lincoln Park District
