The Village of Lombard and the Lombard Park District are reminding residents that the Stay-At-Home Order will continue through May 31st and social distancing remains in place in public/outdoor spaces. Additionally, face (mouth/nose) coverings are now required for situations where a minimum of 6-feet of social distance between you and people that do not reside in your home cannot be maintained at all times. These restrictions are in place to help keep our community safe and we are relying on Lombard to help keep you and your neighbors healthy.
Our highest priority continues to be the health and well-being of our residents, employees, and first responders. Please know that we share in this challenging time with you. We too miss baseball games and outdoor sports with friends and neighbors. We too miss Lilac Time events and celebrating our beautiful Lilac Village. It is our hope that this temporary inconvenience will soon pass, and we look forward to the moment we can safely reunite with our community, but for now - we ask for your patience and understanding.
Parks, Trails, and Golf Course Information
Lombard’s many parks, trails, and open spaces can be used in a safe manner that allows people to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits that these spaces provide. Per the executive order in effect from May 1st - 31st, the Lombard Golf Course will reopen, with restrictions, on Saturday, May 2nd at 6:00 a.m. (weather permitting). Restrictions include allowing only twosomes, spacing out tee times to be 15-minutes apart, requiring golfers to walk the course, no shared rental carts (can bring one’s own pull cart), and requiring reservations only (no walk-ups), as well as the ongoing closure of the driving range and putting green. (Individuals with a physical disability or physical limitations that prevent them from walking the course may rent a cart. Only privately-owned pull carts may be utilized, rental of pull carts from the course will not be allowed.) Visit www.lombardgolfcourse.com for more information.
Lilacia Park and Social Distancing
As of April 30, 2020, Lilacia Park remains open to the public, pending maintained social distancing behavior. We hope to continue providing safe opportunities for the community to get outside and enjoy fresh air. We are depending on our community members to act responsibly.
The Lombard Police Department and the Lombard Park District will continue to work together to disperse groups that are using playgrounds or athletic fields. Lombard Police are monitoring these areas and ask for your voluntary compliance. For information from the Village visit www.villageoflombard.org/covid19.
The Village and the Park District will continue to monitor and act on recommendations from our federal, state and regional public health partners. We appreciate your commitment to these principles. We will get through this together #LombardStrong.
