5/07/2020   The City & Park District of Highland Park reported that the Park Ave Boating Facility will not be open to any water activity at this time. The two governments are in daily communication as it pertains to the impact of COVID on the community. The City reported public safety concerns if sailing or power boating was available given modified staffing levels with great emphasis on responding to COVID matters and minimal dependency on mutual aid during the pandemic. The Park District reported that beaches and parks in Highland Park are open to pedestrian activity; individuals should “keep moving” and be mindful to remain 6’ apart; no congregating or shared use of equipment is permissible. The City and Park District will remain in communication with the North Shore Yacht Club and any changes to beach access will be reported.

We urge you to wait before joining NSYC until it is clear which activities will be allowed and what the NSYC can offer during the 2020 season. We hope to have updated information for our members towards the end of May.  NSYC   Stay Safe and Healthy!
