In-person programs were initially scheduled to begin Jan. 4, but suspended when the state implemented Tier 3 coronavirus mitigation measures.

“The Chicago Park District is committed to protecting our patrons and workforce by following the guidelines put in place by the State’s public health officials,” said General Superintendent and CEO Michael Kelly. “While limited, Winter programs will allow residents to enjoy in-person opportunities in a safe, socially distanced setting”

The park district said they will continue to offer “a vast selection of virtual programs and experiences to keep families active and engaged.”
