The Northbrook Park District is working with area organizations in Glenview and Northbrook as part of the Glenview-Northbrook Coronavirus Task Force to provide information and updates to the community.
We also are committed to providing accurate, timely and valuable information. To that end, updated messaging will be available for as long as there is concern about the novel coronavirus. A newly created web page glenviewnorthbrookcoronavirus.info provides vetted information to help Glenview and Northbrook community members understand the facts and get answers to frequently asked questions. We will continue to update the page as necessary with more specific guidance in the event of confirmed cases in Northfield Township, and any protocols that our organizations and our communities as a whole will follow as a result.
As facilities remain closed, all weekly programs, leagues, and special events have been suspended until further notice. Staff is working on plans to reschedule or cancel, and we will process credits and refunds as these decisions are made or when facilities reopen.
The Northbrook Park District is aware that daily lives of our residents have changed significantly and we recognize the importance of play, especially during stressful times. The District’s trails, parks and open spaces are a wonderful community asset which we plan to keep open and available to the public while it is safe and advisable to do so.
Based on Governor Pritzker’s Statewide Stay at Home Order of March 20:
