Playground Closure Update

On March 21, 2020, per Illinois Executive Order 2020-10, the Glencoe Park District announced that all District playgrounds are closed to public use. In the next 24 hours, playground swings will be removed and entrances to playgrounds will be closed. At this time, all athletic courts are available for individual or small group play as long as the 6 foot social distancing can be maintained. We actively discourage pick-up games of basketball, lacrosse, baseball, soccer, or other team sports that do not allow the 6 foot social distancing standard to be followed. Additionally, District parks and Glencoe Beach do remain open for walking, jogging, and biking as long as park users comply with social distancing requirements. Should reports be received that social distancing is not being maintained at the basketball courts or other areas of the parks or beach, the District may be required to expand closures.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this rapidly evolving situation.
