Chicago Park District Phase 5 Mask Policy

 

Indoor

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.

 

Outdoor

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.

Cancer Survivors’ Garden

Completed in 1996, the Cancer Survivors’ Garden is considered a hidden treasure in the heart of the city. Located on the east side of the park, the garden provides views of Lake Michigan and the Field Museum of Natural History. On the north end, two forty-foot tall granite columns flank a large open metal pavilion and flowers line this area in the spring and summer.  The garden was designed to be a celebration of life and give hope in the midst of a memorable garden setting. The contemplative garden design represents a metaphorical process of recognition and self-knowledge that is crucial to healing. The three main garden rooms represent the three main states of healing: acceptance, support and celebration. Today, the Cancer Survivors’ Garden is a popular location for weddings and other special events. For more information on renting this special space:

***Please note the garden is a public space, however, it is also used for private event rentals and occasionally closed to the public
