  • Getting Ready for E-Recreation

    Plainfield Park District will open registration for virtual programming in May with classes available for all ages including fitness, special events, online learning, and dance.

    Classes will be held virtually via Zoom.

    In order to participate, residents will need to sign up for Zoom, and make sure they have the proper gear ready.

    In preparation of taking your Zoom class we recommend:

    • Disconnect from any VPNs
    • If using a laptop, plug in your wall charger
    • Please remain muted to help maintain good audio quality for everyone
    • Limit the number of devices using the same internet connection
