Elmhurst Park District News

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).
