Due to COVID-19, as of today (3/16/20) and until further notice, all Recreation Facilities (Rec Office, Forum, and Youth Center) will be closed to the public, staff will still be available to answer any questions, 217-893-5700, and all of our future activities can be registered for online at We understand the frustration this leaves for membership holders and participants of current activities. Once we make the decision to reopen will be extending memberships and making up for time lost for activities. If your pass is automatically deducted from your account, we will not be deducting at this time. We are all in the same boat, this is a time for people to come together and help one another, the Recreation's number one priority is to make sure we do what we can to protect our members and participants!! Thank you and please take care of you and everyone around you!!!
