CHICAGO — The Park District is bringing back its in-person programs for the winter — but with safety restrictions.

The Park District’s cultural, sport and nature programs had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the state is now allowing those to come back. Programs will restart Monday and run through March 28, according to a Chicago Park District news release.

People will be required to take safety precautions, though, like wearing masks and staying socially distant. Programs will have strict capacity limits, and everyone who wishes to participate will have to register in advance.

People can learn more about winter programs and register here.

Park field houses remain open to the public during regular hours.
