Facilities Closed for Three Mandatory Shut Down Days Around Holidays


The Chicago Park District administrative offices and facilities, except for McFetridge Sports Center, will be closed for three days adjacent to the holidays. 

The mandatory shut down days are effective:
- Friday, Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving
- Monday, Dec. 24, the day before Christmas
- Monday, Dec. 31, the day before New Year’s Day

“The Chicago Park District, like countless other local organizations, is faced with challenges resulting from difficult financial times,” said General Superintendent and CEO Michael Kelly.  “These mandatory shut down days are one of the many measures we took to help balance the 2012 budget.”

McFetridge Sports Center in California Park, 3843 N. California Ave., has an indoor ice rink and will be open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. this Friday, Nov. 23.  Call the center for activities and times at 773-478-2609.

Patrons should contact their local park for hours of operation around the holidays.
