Please Respect the Community
We are a very fortunate community to have many walking paths and trails in our parks to enjoy the outdoors while we adhere to the requirement of the COVID-19 emergency pandemic. We are all in this together and appreciate your patience and restraint during these trying times.
When one person or a few, decides to break the trust, it impacts all the community. We want all citizens to enjoy the parks and facilities available to you in a safe and respectful manner. Recently, the Addison Police Department became aware of vandalism within several of the park district properties. As a result, we are stepping up patrols and will be helping to enforce the current legal requirements outlined by the stay-at-home orders.
The Park District is encouraged by the progress the community is making to control and decrease the COVID-19 spread. For now, registration will remain closed for all summer programming. When park districts can safely reopen, the focus will be on programs and offerings that best meet the community’s needs, including day camps, adult fitness and use of the parks. Then, as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so, additional programming will be offered.
Parks and trails will remain open for walking, jogging, and biking under the current social distancing guidelines. However, playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, and athletic fields remain closed at the current time.
Please remember to follow the CDC guidelines when visiting our public outdoor spaces – keep social distance of at least 6 feet, do not participate in group activities, and wash your hands both before and after visiting for at least 20 seconds.
We hope you can enjoy the great natural resources Addison has to offer and get some fresh air and exercise. The health and well-being of our community is a top priority. Thank you for your continued understanding during these times. We want everyone to be safe and stay well.
