After weeks of quarantine, people are starting to feel cooped up and stir crazy. So when the weather warms up and the sun comes out, so do the swarms of people anxious to stretch their legs. It’s difficult for Park District staff to direct people away from parks when that’s one of our primary functions. However, the health and safety of our residents is our number one concern during these unprecedented times.
