In accordance with the Governor’s Executive Orders and the Phase 4 Restore Illinois guidelines from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Village will be reopening public, outdoor playgrounds this week. We will be working through all of the playgrounds to do safety inspections, remove weeds and otherwise prepare them for public use. Once the fences and signs are removed, parks will be reopened for use. Until the fencing and signs are removed, please be patient--if the fences and signs are still up, it means that we haven’t had a chance to do a safety inspection.
We strongly encourage residents to follow the state guidelines in using parks, and to maintain social distancing, wear masks when you can’t social distance, wash your hands, and otherwise be safe. As small children often have difficulty social distancing and engaging in good personal health practices, please make sure you keep an eye on your children!
