Welcome to the Grandwood Park Park District

 

GRANDWOOD PARK PARK DISTRICT
PHASE 4 REOPENING PLANS

The state of Illinois and its residents have done a good job of “flattening the curve” to ensure our medical systems do not become overwhelmed. 

"Illinois has done better than almost every other highly populated state" in controlling the virus, Pritzker said, and as a result it "has seen dramatic declines in COVID-19 deaths."

However, that does not mean the virus is gone.  As some states are experiencing, it only takes a few people/events to get the virus spreading again.  Its like a forest fire, as long as there is fuel, it will keep spreading. 

Wearing a face mask and washing our hands is something we can all do.

IL Phase 4: Here's What Reopens, What's Allowed

The Park District will be following the guidelines to ensure the health and safety of the residents of the Park District.

  • Open Space remains available to park district residents and renters per our existing policies.
  • Shelters and fields will be available based on phase 4 guidelines and GPPD policies.
    Outdoor recreation can include group sizes of up to 50 and permit multiple groups given facilities have space to appropriately social distance and can limit interaction between groups. Concession stands will be permitted with restrictions.
  • Rentals will again be available under the states phase 4 guidelines.  The community center has a capacity of 161, however, under the phase 4 guidelines, we will be limited to 50 people.
  • Meetings and events: Events and meetings can resume with the lesser of up to 50 people or 50 percent overall room capacity. Multiple groups are permitted given facilities have space to appropriately social distance and can limit interaction between groups.
  • Little Learners Pre-school will continue to prepare children for kindergarten and will continue to be part of the important step of developing skills needed to successfully transition to school.  Currently, the plan is to resume classes this fall, following guidelines set by he Governor and IDPH.  Enrollment may be limited. 
    "Each school district and each university will develop and implement a reopening plan that meets the needs of their community and the children they serve," Governor Pritzker said.
  • Plans will be in line with state guidance as the state moves into phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan, and measures include wearing masks, limiting gatherings to 50 people or fewer, increasing school cleaning and disinfection, and even implementing symptom checks at schools.

The little guy in the picture on the right was the first to cross the new bridge! The workers made sure he (she?) made it to the creek safely.
