Due to a power outage, the Alcott Center will be closed until Monday. The phone system is also down. Email is the best way to get in touch with any staff member.
While the Park District is closed, and the entire community is confined to their homes during this pandemic, we want to provide the community with opportunities for fun and relaxation. Below are links to some things that our staff has created or found online; and, we encourage you to visit our Facebook page for opportunities to engage with others.
