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 Our staff time may be limited and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

Dear Sandwich Park District Participants,

With the continued threat of the COVID-19 virus, it is the responsibility of the Sandwich Park District to keep all of our participants safe. At this time Governor Pritzker ordered all Illinois Schools be closed until March 30. Sandwich School District 430 has announced schools will be closed starting Monday, March 16th through Monday, March 30th. The Sandwich Park District will follow the lead of the State of Illinois and Sandwich School District 430. We will close all Mother Goose and Pre-k Friday programs starting Monday March 16th and we will resume class on Tuesday March 31st. To ensure the safety of all participants the Sandwich Park District will also cancel/postpone the following programs:


  • Softball Fundamentals – 3/14/20 (Postponed until further notice)
  • Pitching Skills- 3/15/20 (Postponed until further notice)

These programs are canceled/postponed until further notice. We will contact you when and if these programs/events will resume along with the new dates. Our office will remain open at this time. This is a hard decision made by the Sandwich Park District, but we have made these decisions with the health and safety of our residents in mind. We recommend that if you feel sick or have symptoms of the flu to stay home and practice good hygiene. While we have halted our programs and events, we still encourage you to stay active during these times and find fun activities you can do in your home. Board games, video games, blanket forts, and arts and crafts are great ways to keep you active and entertained.
