Pearl City Park District During Illinois’ “Stay at Home”

PEARL CITY, ILLINOIS — The governor of Illinois issued a stay-at-home order on Friday for 13 million residents, making it the latest state to make such a sweeping mandate in the fight against the spread of the new coronavirus.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced the decision for his state at a press conference Friday afternoon. Due to the changes, many local attractions and places we are used to visiting, have changed their policies.

The Pearl City Park District has implemented public safety measures in accordance with Illinois State Executive Order beginning Saturday, March 21 through Tuesday, April 7, 2020.

The Park District will be closing all of their facilities due to the order put in place by the state.

This includes:

  • The Rec building
  • The Athletic Center
  • The shelter house
  • The playground climber
  • Kent park
  • Hide-a-way park
  • The park district baseball diamond

All planned activities and classes are cancelled effective immediately. The Pearl City Park District asks everyone to please be responsible during this shut down.
