The Morton Fine Arts Association has moved their summer concert series for the month of June to the first three Thursday's in August.  Check the calendar for dates, bands and times.  In the event of inclement weather the concert will be cancelled.  

Summer Program Registration

We have updated and posted the Summer 2020 Program Guide on our website to reflect the modifications we've made to our recreation programs. On-line registration will begin Monday, June 8th!

There will be a limited number of registration spots available for our programs this summer due to expected group size limitations. If a program you're wanting to register for fills, add the participant to the wait-list and as public health guidance changes, we will use the wait-lists to add participants.

* Remember, to register on-line, you must create a RecDesk profile through our website.

* If you already have a RecDesk profile, please be sure your information is current.


The Morton Park District has opened 2 of our pickleball courts at Birchwood Park and 1 tennis court at Southwood Park. In order to comply with the current Executive Order, we are requiring the MAXIMUM CAPACITY be limited to 10 individuals at any given time.
