Des Plaines Park District
Until further notice, Tier 3 Mitigation Guidelines will affect park district programs and facilities. While we encourage everyone to follow the stay at home advisory and limit social gatherings, we're committed to providing our members with as many recreation services as possible under the new guidelines. For the week after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27–Dec. 6), and potentially the two weeks after Christmas (Dec. 26–Jan. 8), Prairie Lakes Aquatic Center, Prairie Lakes Community Center, and the Administrative & Leisure Center will be closed. The Golf Center Driving Range, Short Game Area and 9-hole Course will be open. These closings are a safety precaution, as most COVID-19 related exposures occur after some type of indoor gathering. Within a short time after those gatherings, individuals know if they have been exposed or are infected with the virus.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please stay safe throughout the holiday season.
