ROCKFORD — The Rockford Park District has temporarily removed additional recreational amenities within parks as social distancing concerns remain.

Basketball rims, soccer nets, and futsal nets were already removed from parks. Now tennis and pickleball nets will be removed and disc golf cages will be covered. Additional signage will also be placed at playgrounds, sports fields, and golf courses to help educate the community.

The Rockford Park District has been following and supporting guidelines and recommendations made by the Center for Disease Control, Illinois Department of Public Health, State of Illinois, along with Winnebago County Health Department and will continue to do so until this health emergency subsides.
