High Five for Phase 5!
This summer, we are thrilled to continue transitioning toward providing you and your family the top-notch programs, services, and facilities you have come to expect from the Arlington Heights Park District.
Over the past 15 months, we have navigated the pandemic with out a roadmap, and with one goal in mind: keeping our community safe while providing accessible, affordable, fun ways to recreate in the face of unprecedented challenges. We never closed or ceased operations but adjusted course to provide programming to meet each set of guidelines.
In May 2020, we offered golfing opportunities, and in mid-June and throughout the summer, we offered camps, t-ball, outdoor pools, dance, tennis, and opened the ARC. Over the school year we adjusted and changed operations where we could and when Phase 4 began in early February 2021, we worked to bring back youth sports. We worked hard to get our ball diamonds and soccer fields ready, prepare the parks for spring, and started getting all five outdoor pools ready in anticipation for summer 2021. Last month, we celebrated the end of the dance program season with a modified recital.
We are so proud of our entire team who have gone above and beyond to meet these challenges and support our community. Thank you, our community, for your continued patience and support as we navigated this pandemic together. We are all looking forward to a great fall season!
