ATTENTION

Effective Monday March 23 the Sandwich Park District office

will be closed to the public until further notice.

However our parks will remain open EXCEPT playgrounds. We will be closing our playgrounds to the public by marking them off and posting signage. This is an effort to keep people healthy and safe. We also encourage you to not gather in groups larger than ten people. The Sandwich Park District would like to thank you for your cooperation during this stressful time. We hope to be open as soon as possible. If for some reason you need to contact the Sandwich Park District you can call us at (815)786-8044 or send us an email at sandwichparkdistrict@comcast.net. Our staff time may be limited and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

Thanks!
