Destination Parks

The Lan-Oak Park District is proud to own and maintain nineteen parks, throughout Lansing, providing residents an option for recreating outside. Smaller parks found in neighborhoods are sure to offer playgrounds, a little open space, and, depending on park size, another common play or athletic opportunity. Some larger parks, however, offer something special an amenity not found in any other Lansing park.

These parks are your community destination for some very specific fun!

Dozens of surrounding, mature trees make visiting the community playground a very special event for kids and parents.

The park district is proud to offer a bikepath winding through Lansing, extending from the Illinois/Indiana state line to the southern village limit of Calumet City. The Pennsy Greenway is part of the 475-mile Grand Illinois Trail. When proposed, the park district outlined many wonderful reasons for adding a bike path to the Lansing park system: **Maximize non-motorized access for all residents to the Pennsy Greenway and the expanding regional trail network in the Chicago Southland and Northwest Indiana **Improve the safety of streets within the Lansing community for all users **Provide a convenient network that accommodates the range of bicycle use in the Lansing community – for recreation, exercise, and transportation **Encourage bicycling as a choice for active living and an inexpensive, non-polluting, and convenient option for local trips.

In this new COVID19 world, will my preschooler be safe at school?

While nothing will keep your child 100% safe, we have a plan that may make school possible for your child. The benefits of in-person school are immense – consider Playskool as your child’s perfect school start.

Playskool will carefully follow the guidelines issued by the IDPH. Our students will require masks (provided by Playskool and laundered after every use). Teachers will be masked. Class sizes will be limited to 10 children per room (to allow for better distancing) and one teacher. Classes will not mix and each class will have its own restroom facility. Students will be assigned their own box of supplies for the school year - no sharing. Sand and water will only be opened once every five days. Toys will be rotated and sanitized daily. Students will wash their hands every hour and teachers will sanitize classrooms throughout the class period. The playground is private for use only by Playskool. Classes will rotate playground use and the playground will be sanitized after every use.

Paws ‘n Play at Bock Park

Who wants to play?! The Lan-Oak Park District is proud to offer a very special park, just for you and your best friend. Paws ‘n Play provides ample grassy space for running and playing - space that is fence-enclosed in an attractive and interesting curved design. The dog park spans about one acre, has separate areas for large and small dogs, grassy berms, a shade shelter, a two-level water fountain, and park benches. For your dog’s safety, entry is restricted through a computerized gate to only allow those animals that are registered and have provided proof of current vaccinations to the park district. Paws ‘n Play memberships are available for purchase at the Lan-Oak Park District Eisenhower Center. The membership requirements, lisiting of required immunizations, rules and regulations, and full packet are available on the park district website at www.lanoakparkdistrict.org. Memberships are for one year from the date of purchase. Resident fee for one dog is $50 with a second dog fee of $30. Paws ‘n Play is open year-round. Members must comply with state COVID executive orders while visiting - face masks, social distancing, water fountain closed. Residents are welcome to join in the fun and sponsor the dog park on behalf of their best friend... I HELPED, TOO! Sponsorship In order to celebrate the best friends that enjoy the park, residents may receive a sign, mounted at the dog park, displaying their dog’s name. This is a one-time, $100 donation. Residents may volunteer their time to help maintain the dog park by calling 708-474-8552. Paws ‘n Play at Bock Park is located at 17551 Chicago Avenue, near the corner of Chicago Avenue and 175th Street. Drive by, check it out!

Paws ‘n Play at Bock Park is a Winner! The Lan-Oak Park District

has been presented with the Outstanding Park Award for its design and development of the Paws ‘n Play Dog Park at Bock Park. The Outstanding Park Award is presented each year by the Illinois Park and Recreation Association (IPRA). The award is separated into two divisions – Division 1 for a park district with an overall budget of under $5 million annually, and Division 2 for a park district with an annual budget of more than $5 million. Lan-Oak Park District won in Division 1.

About the Paws ‘n Play Design...

Dogs, when given the chance, will walk in curves as a calming signal. It’s what they do when they meet off-leash and are free to do things their own way. This understanding led to the curved design of the park, rather then the rectangular shape most common in dog parks. Dogs always seem to run the perimeter of an enclosed space. Why? Dogs are very territorial and they are making sure that everything is okay on their turf. To avoid the certain wear and tear around the perimeter of the park, limestone (a substance safe for dog paws) was poured along the outside fence line. Just like humans, dogs receive a stronger workout when moving uphill and downhill. Doing so strengthens their cardiovascular health - thus the addition of berms inside the park.

Please recognize that the park district does not carry medical accident insurance for injuries sustained in its programs. The cost of this insurance would make program fees prohibitive.

Age Appropriateness...Recreation programs are designed for specific age groups as listed in the program description. Please be respectful of the specified age. Birth certificates may be requested. Behavior Policy...The Lan-Oak Park District has a behavior management policy relative to inappropriate behavior.Inappropriate behavior is defined as that which disrupts a recreation program or general recreation and requires a supervisor to call for a stop of the behavior due to its effect on other participants or the supervisor’s ability to conduct a program. Such behavior may call for immediate and/or permanent dismissal of the participant. Facility rules and usage guidelines also apply. Program Cancellation...Registration deadlines allow the park district time for ordering supplies and scheduling instructors. Lan-Oak Park District reserves the right to cancel or postpone programs due to insufficient enrollment. Please register by the deadline dates listed. Sled Hills...The park district has one

designated sled hill located at Erfert Park. No other hills are maintained for sledding. Sledding is allowed only during daylight hours from dawn until dusk. The hill is not supervised and the user is responsible for determining if the conditions are appropriate for sledding. Participants must follow posted rules and regulations.

Please understand that failure to provide timely and appropriate notice of a special need and/or request for reasonable accommodation may result in a delay in assessment. When feasible and appropriate, the ark district asks that requests for reasonable accommodation be made at least two weeks in advance of any activity or program. The Lan-Oak Park District and the Village of Lansing are two separate entities. Your tax bills list the park district and the village separately and separate taxes are allocated to each.

In this new COVID19 world, will my preschooler be safe at school?

While nothing will keep your child 100% safe, we have a plan that may make school possible for your child. The benefits of in-person school are immense – consider Playskool as your child’s perfect school start.

Playskool will carefully follow the guidelines issued by the IDPH. Our students will require masks (provided by Playskool and laundered after every use). Teachers will be masked. Class sizes will be limited to 10 children per room (to allow for better distancing) and one teacher. Classes will not mix and each class will have its own restroom facility. Students will be assigned their own box of supplies for the school year - no sharing. Sand and water will only be opened once every five days. Toys will be rotated and sanitized daily. Students will wash their hands every hour and teachers will sanitize classrooms throughout the class period. The playground is private for use only by Playskool. Classes will rotate playground use and the playground will be sanitized after every use.

Questions? 708-474-8552 Class sizes are smaller, so register early to reserve your spot. Call to schedule a private tour. 19
