Are children permitted to climb trees in the parks?

Kids are allowed to climb trees in our parks. However, safety is the Park District’s number one priority and we hope children are under adult supervision when climbing trees for their protection. Additionally, Ordinance 7.6 in the Park District Code prohibits damage to Park District property including trees, shrubs, plants, turf, and any other property. There are many new and young trees in our parks that would not be strong enough to withstand the weight of a child.
