Chicago Park District Phase 5 Mask Policy



As the health and well-being of children in our parks is our highest priority and with most of the children in our programs not eligible to receive the vaccine, the Chicago Park District will continue to require that face coverings be worn by everyone who enters our indoor spaces when children are present.  If children are not present, vaccinated persons may remove their face coverings.



The Chicago Park District encourages everyone to follow the recommendations of public health officials from the Chicago Department of Public Health, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and unvaccinated persons should continue to wear a face covering in crowded outdoor settings or in instances where social distancing cannot be maintained.







The Chicago Park District is committed to making its facilities accessible to and usable by all patrons and visitors. This commitment is ongoing, proactive and intended to meet the needs of a diversity of park patrons with disabilities.

The accessibility features within Maggie Daley Park include:

  • Wheelchair and stroller-friendly park entrances and paved pathways throughout. Ascending and descending paved pathways meet or exceed Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for running slopes.
  • Fieldhouse power door entry, wide hallways and modern bathrooms provide enhanced access for wheelchair users and individuals with mobility limitations.
  • A poured in place soft surface base and play elements in the Play Garden that meet or exceed ADA minimum standards.
  • When in season, the Skating Ribbon offers a skate assist sled for use by skaters with physical disabilities and their companion skater.
  • Designated accessible parking is available on Randolph Street, and parking garages with street level elevator access are also available.
