New Open Play Times & Guidelines

Starting Monday, July 27, Open Play will have staggered times and new guidelines. These changes are being made to help control traffic at the Community Center and keep our patrons and staff safe. Please review the following information. We need your cooperation to keep everyone safe!

Monday through Friday, Youth Open Play will be from 2-3:30 pm and 3:45-5:15 pm. Saturday’s time is 8 am-4 pm. Sunday’s slots are 9-10:30 am and 10:45 am-12:15 pm. Participants can only stay for one time slot as we need to honor other reservations.

Similar to the Fitness Center, Open Play will switch to a reservation system. You must call the Community Center ahead of time to make a reservation. Open Play reservations will be for Franklin Park Residents and Pass Holders only. Participants must show proof of residency or be in our system.

The number of participants allowed in the gym at once is now 9. Up to three people can shoot at a basket. Shooting hoops and drills are permitted. There are no games allowed. We ask that you please follow these rules to limit contact with other participants.

As part of the All Sports Policy released by Illinois DCEO, face masks must be worn by participants during indoor sports starting Saturday, August 15. This includes Open Play and our upcoming Youth Athletic Programs.

When entering the facility, you must wear a mask. If you enter without a mask, you will be asked to leave. Please keep a safe social distance at all possible times, especially when checking in for your reservation and heading down to the gym.

To make a reservation or ask any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Community Center at (847) 455-2852. We thank you for your continued support as we navigate through this challenging time. Our goal is to safely provide as many recreation opportunities for our residents as we can.
