It was no ordinary year for any of us in 2020. Your Park District, like businesses, schools, cities and organizations, had to adapt, adjust, and invent as the coronavirus pandemic spread. However, the parks were some of the only places that people could recreate, relax and rejuvenate. CWPD could not just shut down. We had to find ways to enable and welcome residents to the great outdoors as a means of coping with the pandemic restrictions.
In the 2020 Annual Report, you will read about how the Park Board and staff did just that. Never before had parks been more important to a community. Therefore, your Park District mobilized to meet the community’s greater need to enjoy parks.
