11:30 AM  Dear Crete Park Family

As we continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19), our first thought is for the safety and well-being of all individuals impacted by these difficult circumstances. In these unprecedented times, it is important that we come together to support all those impacted.  

The Crete Park District is closing all recreation programs and rentals until further notice in accordance with State Executive Orders.   We are attempting to phone all individuals registered for programs through May 1, 2020.

 Our Park office and all parks are closed to the public in accordance with the Executive Order from Governor Pritzker to stay at home or place of residence.  All public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit is prohibited. As a staff we are limiting our office hours and we are working from our homes.  The telephones are being forwarded to our homes if you have any questions.

We will continue to keep everyone informed as the situation develops.  At this time our notices will be made via CretePark.com, Facebook along with emails and phone calls.  Please take the time to confirm that the Crete Park District has your current email and phone number for contact if you are signed up for programs.  

Plans are changing quickly on how this situation is being handled. Stay tuned for further updates. As always, feel free to contact us at 708-672-6969 if you have any questions.  We appreciate your understanding and wish your family good health.

Quickball (Ages 4-5) is a National Youth Sports program that teaches diamond skills with a fast paced curriculum.  Their effective curriculum is action packed and recognized by the MLB!    Quickball grabs the attention of children and  has been quoted as "The Fastest Game on the Diamond." Parents and coaches agree it's better than tball for skill building.

AND each child that registers through Crete Park District will receive a bat, ball and weekly training cards.  How fun is that?
