I Want To:


Interested in using our parks or shelters for events?   Please note that, given current guidelines for group size, the District is not currently doing any formal shelter or other park rentals, so parks and shelters are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.  PLEASE NOTE that crowd sizes must be limited to the current 10-person limit.    While there are not necessarily staff onsite 24/7 doing headcounts and measuring six-foot distance, our PPD police and security are doing regular monitoring and that gatherings which appear to be violating current safety guidelines associated with Phase 3 of Restore IL may potentially be required to disperse.


Franciscan Recreation Center Trail Closure – Asphalt paving work. The trail around Franciscan Recreation Complex is currently closed for asphalt pavement work. Once the trail is removed, it will be replaced with fresh asphalt and will reopen as soon as the project is complete.  We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Questions can be forwarded to Park District Planning staff at [email protected]

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 continues to focus on this important work.  For information on Park District activities and facilities that are open, please click here.

In light of the continued closures and restrictions on large groups and gatherings, the Peoria Park District has determined that it is in the best interest of our valued patrons and staff to cancel selected scheduled programming and events, with the goal of reducing the spread of the coronavirus in our local community.
If you or your child is enrolled in an activity that has been impacted by these cancellations, you will be issued a refund for any missed sessions within 7-10 business days.
If you originally paid via credit card, any refunds will be issued to the card on file; if you originally paid via cash or check, or if the card on file is expired, you will be mailed a check within 7-10 business days. Fees originally paid via scholarship will be refunded to your scholarship balance. Your refund receipt will be e-mailed to you electronically. We are continuing to monitor this situation and will communicate with you if further closures are deemed necessary.
We appreciate your patience during this difficult time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via email at [email protected] or via the Peoria Park District Facebook page.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time, and thank you as always for your support of the Peoria Park District!
