Effective 5pm Saturday, March 21, 2020, the Arlington Heights Park District is temporarily suspending all operations and closing all facilities, and playgrounds, until April 7, 2020, with the exception of essential services (baseline maintenance of parks and facilities) in support of Governor Pritzker’s efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus.  It is our hope that this drastic measure will help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 spreading throughout our community. 

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully and the Park District is committed to following the state’s updated policy on social gatherings to help slow the spread of the virus.

In a time like this, it is important to get out and get fresh air.  Our parks will remain open to take walks per the stay-at-home order issued Friday, March 20, 2020. If you choose to enjoy our parks, the Park District reminds you to follow CDC guidelines which call for social distancing. 

In the meantime, please follow us on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and visit our website for a variety of Do-It-Yourself at home activities to keep having fun and to stay fit.  

During this time, if you should need to contact us, please visit and click on the “Contact Us” banner on the homepage.  We will strive to respond to your inquiries within 24-48 hours during normal business hours, Monday – Friday; 8:30am to 4:30pm.  You may also leave a message for us by calling our main phone number at 847-577-3000.

Our Summer Program Guide will be available online in April.  We look forward to returning to serving you and your families as soon as possible. 

Wishing you good health and the ability to find moments of joy in this time.
