This is a FREE EVENT for the public to celebrate Unplug Illinois Day, a program of the Illinois Park & Recreation Association to promoting unplugging for an analog day of play in community parks.

Why Unplug? Unplugging delivers many physical, mental, social and health benefits such as:

Improve your physical health – Getting 30 minutes of physical activity can improve blood pressure, lower cholesterol, reduce stress and extend life expectancy according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Improve your mental health – The National Recreation and Park Association states that more time spent in parks and green spaces can help individuals fight against mental health issues like depression, anxiety and stress.

Improve your social interactions – Spending time with family and friends helps cope with trauma, encourages healthy habits and can lower health risks such as stress and high blood pressure according to the Mayo Clinic.

Improve your lifestyle – Committing to taking time away from screens can improve sleep cycles, boost being present in the moment, increase productivity and improve social connections.
