Elgin Parks and Recreation Facility Closures and Program Cancellations Extended Through End of April



The Edward Schock Centre of Elgin, the Eastside Recreation Center and Golf Courses Closures have been extended through April 30.

As part of the City of Elgin’s ongoing efforts to slow the spread of coronavirus, the Elgin Parks and Recreation Department is closing all facilities including the Edward Schock Centre of Elgin, the Eastside Recreation Center and its three golf courses (Bowes Creek Country Club, the Highlands of Elgin and Wing Park Golf Course) beginning Monday, March 16 and lasting through at least April 30. These closures include the fitness areas at those facilities.

Classes and programs already cancelled will remain cancelled through at least the end of March. This includes classes and programs at the Edward Schock Centre of Elgin, the Eastside Recreation Center and Hawthorne Hill Nature Center.

Classes and programs are tentatively set to resume on Wednesday, May 1, but staff will continue evaluating the need to extend closures and cancellations during this rapidly changing environment.

Parks and Recreation staff will work with patrons to address any issues related to facility memberships, rentals and class/program registration.
