The Jackson Park Advisory Council (JPAC) is the body that monitors the park, represents the community and advises the Chicago Park District. We hold the district accountable for stewardship and preserve the park’s historic character and special natural areas. We also represent all park users and communities while seeking to reach the park’s highest potential.  

JPAC usually meets on the second Monday of the month from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Meeting dates and locations are subject to change due to Jackson Park Improvements so please check the Meetings Page for details.

Effective February 28, 2022, face coverings will not be required for Park District patrons, with limited exceptions detailed below.

While face coverings are not required in most settings, we strongly recommend that individuals continue to wear face coverings if they are unvaccinated or immunocompromised, or if they are interacting with people that are unvaccinated, including children under the age of five.

Masks will still be required during all transportation on buses or other vehicles.

* Please also note that parks located in Chicago Public School (CPS) buildings must follow CPS mask policy.

Many patrons and employees may choose to continue to wear a mask – please be kind to anyone that makes this choice. We fully support and encourage any patron or employee that makes the decision to continue wearing a mask. More info about the Park District COVID response.
