MAKE PLANS TO VISIT BLACKBERRY FARM

Reopening After a Long Closure – Early Bird Rates through May 14

Blackberry Farm – the Fox Valley Park District’s living history museum – is set to reawaken in 2021, after the entirety of the 2020 season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Season passes are available for purchase. District officials announced early-bird rates from March 1 through May 14, when a resident season pass for a family of four costs $100, compared to the $120 regular rate. Per CDC guidelines, high-touch surfaces are required to be cleaned every two hours, Harling said, and park staff will adhere to all regulations set forth by state and local health organizations. Season passes can be purchased at https://www.blackberryfarm.info/memberships-season-passes/, or at the Vaughan Athletic Center, Prisco and Eola community centers, and Cole Center Administrative Office.
