All Palatine Park District facilities are operating under regular hours of business as scheduled at this time.
Inclement Weather Notification Procedure
The decision to close District facilities is made by the Executive Director and is not taken lightly as many factors influence that decision. The safety of our customers and staff is the most important element in the decision-making process.

Important: be sure to register for only the program or event notifications you are interested in!
In the event Community Consolidated School District 15, Township High School District 211, and/or Village of Palatine are closed, the determination to close Palatine Park District facilities may occur and notification will be posted in the following ways:
- Website • Visit palatineparks.org and look for a “District Alert” with the latest updates.
- Email • Facility closing notifications will be sent to our email subscribers. To receive an email notification, join our email list.
- Social Media • Facility closures will be posted on Palatine Park District Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
- Mobile App • Facility closings and program cancellations will be sent to Palatine Park District mobile app users. To receive messages, download the app from the App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android. Mobile app can also be accessed by visiting app.palatineparks.org.
When the Park District remains open during inclement weather, it is the decision of the individual (or parent/guardian of minors) to attend the scheduled activity. Refunds are not given unless the activity is canceled by Palatine Park District.
