Cabin Fever?

Step Outside and Try Something New

Local, virtual events and acres of open parks and forest preserves allow families plenty of options to move outdoors in a socially-distanced way as the seasons change.

The Park District of Highland Park is home to many beautiful natural areas and historic parks so start exploring today!

Although virtual this year, the annual Thanksgiving Day North Shore Turkey Trot offers fun and competition for the entire family.

Grab your hiking shoes and an iPhone or camera and “snap Lake County” at one of the many county’s beautiful forest preserves. Submit photographs online while learning more about other family offerings in Lake County.

While enjoying any activity with your child, continue to have those short but meaningful conversations. Over time, relationships strengthen and trust builds.

It’s not one 60-minute conversation.
