On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will occur in 14 states – including a small area in southern Illinois – while a partial eclipse will affect the rest of the state. While only a small portion of Illinois will experience total darkness, the light levels during a roughly three-hour period between 11:45 a.m. and 3 p.m. will be similar to dusk/twilight. Click here to view a simulation of the eclipse in your specific location.
In anticipation of the distraction the eclipse will cause, PDRMA recommends that members should determine ahead of time which activities are safe to continue and which equipment is safe to use during the eclipse (i.e., mowing, maintenance, golf, etc.).

During the warmer months, the Seafari Springs Aquatic Center creates watery wonderland with water slides and pools, while local garden plots encourage community members to plant fruits and vegetables. In addition to these facilities, the park district hosts a variety of events for all ages such as Day at the Park, The annual Youth Benefit Ball, and the annual 5K Dash 'N Splash, which raises funds for the district's scholarship program.
