I Want To:


While our parks and trails are OPEN for socially distanced use, all Peoria Park District facilities are closed.  All Playgrounds and Basketball Courts are currently closed for use.  Click here to view Peoria Parks Alerts.  Thank you!

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.

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 scheduled programming and events planned through April 30, 2020, 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!

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!
