Letter From The President

maryfranHigh 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!
