**All patrons are highly recommended to wear masks indoors**

On July 29, 2021, Cook County entered into the substantial spread category of COVID-19 and its variants.  Based on recommendations from the CDC and IDPH, we highly recommend that all patrons, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask in all public indoor settings until further notice. Please remember that some facilities serve high-risk groups including seniors and school-age children who are not vaccinated.  Beginning August 2, all children 12 years and under and their instructors are required to wear face masks at all times while indoors.  Additionally, all individuals, regardless of vaccine status, in our school-related programs, must wear masks at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.

Twin Lakes Nature Walk

NATURE TRAIL

The Salt Creek Park District has completed renovation work to the native area located along the fence line on the north side of Twin Lakes, just south of Kenilworth Ave.  The renovation project consisted of removing volunteer weed trees and undesirable vegetation between the creek and the fence line, while restoring the native habitat.  Selective plant material will be left along the fence line to provide continual privacy to homeowners that live adjacent to the park.  The intent was to rejuvenate and enhance the native trail for the enjoyment of all patrons visiting the park.

Stewardship work has also been done on the nature trail.  Undesirable trees and shrubs have been removed from the woodland area and invasive weeds are being removed as they emerge.  Staff will be dormant seeding the woodland area this fall to complete renovation process.  Ongoing stewardship will continue to take place to improve the establishment of existing native plants.
