The DeKalb Park District is excited that DeKalb County, as part of Region 1 of the Restore Illinois Plan, is now in Phase 4. This means that all indoor and outdoor recreational programs may resume with safety restrictions, and gatherings of 50 people or fewer are permitted. Facility, field, and park shelter rentals may also resume! If our region returns to Tier 1-3 mitigations, select programs and events may be canceled, and refunds issued. Stay up-to-date by visiting our COVID-19 Updates & Announcements webpage to help keep you informed about what is open vs. closed.
Daddy Daughter & Heroes Dance Resumes with Restrictions
This February 20th event celebrates the bond between a little girl and her father or male role model in her life. The dance gives girls a special night out that includes professional photographs, desserts, contests, a special memento, a flower, and dancing.
Due to COVID-19, we will have two time slots that last 90 minutes each and allow staff to disinfect the Terrace Room between groups. Space is limited and the event is likely to sell out. Get your tickets now! $20 IDR/$24 R per couple, per time slot. $10 per additional daughter. If we return to Tier 1-3 Mitigations, this event will be canceled and refunds issued. Face-coverings required. Register Now.
Winter Festival Canceled
Staff has made the hard decision to cancel our annual Polar-palooza event due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, paired with the amount of staff needed to host the event. We can’t wait to see you next year for this winter tradition!
Although Polar-palooza is canceled, we hope you still come to Hopkins Park to enjoy the Sled Hill and Ice Rink this winter season. Outdoor Recreation.
