Emergency Closings

All weather and emergency-related closings are posted to this web page. If no notification is posted, all facilities, programs and classes are running as scheduled. Participants will not receive an e-mail or telephone call for District-wide closings.

The Elmhurst Park District makes independent decisions for its facilities and does not necessarily follow the decisions of other local government bodies. Decisions are made based on conditions relevant to District offerings and for the safety of its participants. (For example: preschool programs, sled hills and senior programs may run despite an instance of District 205 schools being closed).


Ice Skating Closing

Eldridge Park Lagoon Ice Skating - CLOSED

As of Thursday, March 2, 2017 – The lagoon is CLOSED and the red flag is in place.
 
Staff tests the ice in 6 locations and all 6 locations need to reach a consistent (3 day) thickness of 8 inches before we will open the lagoon for skating.
 
The lagoon at Eldridge Park is used for ice skating during the winter months. Open water presents unique challenges for an ice skating rink. Ice is unpredictable due to changes in air and water temperature, salinity, water flow, snow cover, etc. Staff documents daily inspections of the ice at the lagoon. Once the ice reaches a consistent (3 day) thickness of 8 inches a green flag will be posted and the lagoon will be open for skating.
