Chicago Park District Mask Policy

Effective February 28, 2022, face coverings will not be required for Park District patrons, with limited exceptions detailed below.

While face coverings are not required in most settings, we strongly recommend that individuals continue to wear face coverings if they are unvaccinated or immunocompromised, or if they are interacting with people that are unvaccinated, including children under the age of five.

Masks will still be required during all transportation on buses or other vehicles.

*  Please also note that parks located in Chicago Public School (CPS) buildings must follow CPS mask policy which currently requires masks in all indoor settings.

Many patrons and employees may choose to continue to wear a mask – please be kind to anyone that makes this choice. We fully support and encourage any patron or employee that makes the decision to continue wearing a mask.

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
