Oregon Park District Closures & Cancellations

Mar 20th, 2020

BUILDING CLOSURES
The Oregon Park District will continue to adhere to the recommendations of President Trump, Governor Pritzker and the CDC and will remain closed until April 30th. We believe it is in the best interest of our community to take precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. All programs and events scheduled through April 30th will either be cancelled or postponed and you will be contacted accordingly. Oregon Park District playgrounds, skate park, outdoor fitness equipment, basketball courts, tennis courts and dog park will also remain closed. All parks will remain open, but the water fountains and bathrooms will not be available. If you choose to use the parks for walking, hiking, running or biking, please continue to comply with social distancing requirements.

MEMBERSHIP PASSES
All individuals that have a current facility membership will be granted an extension towards their expiration date for the number of days Nash Recreation Center is closed.  The extension will be reflected on your membership after Nash re-opens.  For more information, please email alyssa@oregonpark.org.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
Youth Spring Soccer – After much deliberation, the spring soccer season has been cancelled. All participants will be contacted with refund information.

Youth Baseball/Softball – The registration deadline has been extended to April 9th. Online registration is available at www.oregonpark.org. Non-resident fees have been waived to eliminate any difficulties with on-line registration during the COVID-19 closure.

PARK AMENITY CLOSURES
Executive Order No. 8 issued by Governor Pritzker requires public organizations to close places of public amusement, both indoors and outdoors.  Beginning immediately Oregon Park District playgrounds, skate park, outdoor fitness equipment, basketball courts, tennis courts and dog park are closed until further notice.  The parks will remain open, but the water fountains and bathrooms will not be available.  If you choose to use the parks for walking, hiking, running or biking, please continue to comply with social distancing requirements.

The District has remained closed since March 14th. During this time, the Oregon Park District employees have remained committed to our operation and are looking forward to serving the community upon reopening. Many projects have been completed and program changes implemented in preparation for our residents to return. A special thank you to the Oregon Park District employees for their continued dedication and commitment to serving our community.  Individuals who are affected by reschedules or refunds will be contacted soon.  The District will re-evaluate the situation and inform the community of further decisions in the near future.
