Community Collaboration: May 22 Update 
 
Northbrook Park District Facility Updates
The Northbrook Park District continues to monitor guidelines from the CDC, the State of Illinois and the Village of Northbrook to make determinations regarding the ability to offer expanded outdoor amenities and in-person programming to the community. The District plans to open more opportunities to the public when allowed to do so.

Virtual Programming
At this time, virtual programs are being offered covering a range of activities and interests. See the Virtual Guide here and Connect-2-Play today!

Golf, Tennis and Pickleball Are Open With Restrictions
  • Select tennis and pickleball courts are now open in District parks. Visit the Tennis/Pickleball Courts Page for more information.
  • The par-3 Anetsberger Golf Course located in Techny Prairie Park and Fields is now open for play by twosomes with reservations. For more information on golf memberships, fees and tee times, visit anetsbergergolf.com


At this time, all regions of the state, including ours, are on track to move to Phase 3 (Recovery) on May 30 based on the guidelines of the Restore Illinois plan . This phase allows:
  • Gatherings of 10 or fewer people for any reason, with distancing requirements
  • Opening of some non-essential businesses, following safety guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health
  • Limited return to work of employees of non-essential businesses
In Phase 3, face coverings and physical distancing will continue to be required.
 
Our organizations are preparing facilities, staff and operations for a safe transition to this phase, and we are looking ahead, discussing our plans and sharing resources and ideas with an eye to Phase 4 (Revitalization).
 
We are putting safety first. As we develop new systems and procedures to operate safely to meet distancing and other requirements, things will look and feel different, and it may take longer for us to serve you. Please be patient! We all are working to meet the needs of our community in the safest way possible. 
 
The work we are doing now also will help us as we move into Phase 4, which will include school openings.
