Dear Carol Stream Park District Residents and Patrons:
Coral Cove Water Park will stay closed for the 2020 Season
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Carol Stream Park District will be keeping the Coral Cove Water Park closed for the 2020 swim season. If you already purchased a 2020 season pass, your park district account will be credited.
The Carol Stream Park District Board and Staff feel this is the right decision for the health and safety of the community as we continue to cope with how the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds. There are still so many questions we wish we could answer. The Park District has not been spared from the evolving challenges we face in not opening up facilities, not running programs and canceling events. As one of the biggest employers in the community, we also understand the huge impact caused by not hiring seasonal staff. We are truly heartbroken that we are unable to bring you the recreational opportunities we had planned and that you are used to seeing and enjoying.
We also understand that Coral Cove Water Park provides immeasurable benefits to the community. Coral Cove provides fun days in the sun, a place to make family memories, a great place for friends to play, or a local place to hang out. However, ensuring the safety and well-being of the community, visitors and staff must take priority.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) does not recommend visiting water parks. To operate Coral Cove Water Park, we would still need to comply with social distancing (keeping people 6 feet or more apart), size limitations (keeping gatherings under 50 people), and cleaning/disinfecting guidelines. We considered the impact of these recommendations on the pool, our community, visitors and staff; and we determined it is unclear how to open the water park and still comply with the strict limits and safety protocols issued by the CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
The Carol Stream Park District is anxious to fully serve our residents and get life back to “normal,” but we must do so based on the recommendations of our State Officials and the CDC; we take our responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19 seriously. The safety and well-being of our residents must remain at the forefront in order to see any return to normalcy in the future. This overall effort is our highest priority.
Thank you for understanding and stay safe.
