Update as of Saturday, April 11, 2020
The Waukegan Park District has been advised to limit large gatherings and is following recommendations of social distancing. At this time, we are most concerned about supporting public health and well-being. For these reasons, an informed and carefully considered decision was made to close facilities and cancel programs.
We strive to provide customer satisfaction while providing a safe and healthy facility for both users and staff. We will not proceed with Field House membership billing until a reopening date has been determined. At that time, we will prorate the cost of memberships based on the time that we are closed.
Thank you, and we hope that you stay safe and healthy during this time. We look forward to seeing everyone as soon as we reopen.
