Looking for something new and spooktacular to do with the whole family? Would it be even better if it were free? Drive-Thru Trunk-or-Treating at Haunted Hickory Lodge Friday, October 23 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Each vehicle will travel around the Halloween-themed circle drive, stopping in the back-parking lot at multiple treat stops hosted by
Carbondale Park District and other local groups and organizations. All trunk-or-treaters must stay in their vehicle at all times; this will ensure the safety of everyone and also keep the flow of traffic moving. Although participants will be in their vehicles at all times, they are encouraged to dress up in costume or dress your vehicle up. (Groups and organizations handing out treats will be wearing mask and gloves. Everyone is asked to wear a face mask.)
Pack up the family, and head to the Haunted Hickory Lodge (1115 W. Sycamore St) for some ghoulish goodies!

Go geocaching through the Carbondale Park District parks! Inspired by our 80th Birthday and 8-decades of service in the Carbondale community, we have created a Geocaching Through the Parks, a free, family-friendly activity. Here’s how it works. Each week (starting Friday, October 9) we will reveal a hint to a cache that is hidden at Marberry Arboretum, Doug Lee/Superblock, Parrish Park, Evergreen Park, Attucks Park, or Oakdale Park.

The hint will have the cache’s GPS coordinates, a picture of the cache, and a clue for finding it. Look each week for a hint to a new cache on our website or here, for the next 8-weeks (ends December 1). Use the GPS coordinates, read the clue, or just go searching through the parks to find the cache. Under the cache or box is a clipboard with a cache log where you can write your name. Feel free to take a photo of your find and send to info@cpkd.org or to our Facebook page.

What is geocaching? Geocaching is a recreational activity where participants can use Global positioning devices or mobile phones to locate hidden objects. These hidden objects are called “caches”. There are caches hidden all over the world. You can find loads of useful information including other caches hidden around Carbondale and Carbondale Park District parks at www.geocaching.com.

Get out and geocache! Have fun and be safe! Always remember to geocache with an adult and to never trespass onto private property. Always be aware of your surroundings.

Residents of Carbondale, Celebrate! Out of hundreds of applicants, our community was 1 of 17 awarded Rebuild Illinois funds through the Fast-Track Public Infrastructure (FTPI) grant. The over $1 million dollar grant was awarded to the City of Carbondale, who has been working in conjunction with the Carbondale Park District. Funded projects throughout the state include a wide range of public infrastructure improvement projects, including projects that entail new construction and/or significant renovation or improvements. This grant comes at a good time to stimulate the local economy in the wake of the COVID-19 health crisis.

Carbondale Park District’s Evergreen Park offers so much to the Carbondale community. The park has playground equipment, natural areas, hiking/walking, fishing, picnicking, shelters, BBQ grills, free parking, and more. The grant funding will allow ADA Accessibility improvements to be made to the restrooms, sidewalks, and parking lot areas. The much-needed improvements and renovations to Evergreen Park will begin within 90 days.

The Carbondale Park District continues to serve the Carbondale community. Join us in September for loads of 80th Birthday fun around town. Watch for more birthday information coming soon!

PLEASE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW RECOMMENDED PROTOCOLS: WEAR A MASK, SOCIAL DISTANCING and FREQUENT HAND WASHING are strongly recommended.
