The Peoria Park District’s mission focuses on supporting the health and wellness of those who live, work and play in our District. In the face of the coronavirus outbreak, the District continue to focus on this important work. For updates on Park District closures and cancellations due to COVID-19, please click here.
Please note, Governor Pritzker issued a new Executive Order 2020-10 requiring all Illinoisans to stay at home (with limited exceptions) from Saturday, March 21, at 5 p.m. through April 30, 2020. The order specifically states individuals may leave their residences to engage in outdoor activity such as walking, hiking, running or biking and may go to public parks and open outdoor recreation areas if they comply with the Social Distancing Requirements defined in the order – but playgrounds must close. Please keep this in mind as you safely use our parks and trails over the next few weeks. Thank you!
