Cantigny Park Hours and Operations


PLEASE NOTE: While Cantigny is open for guests to enjoy, some areas of the park are closed due to ongoing Project New Leaf construction. Many of the newly created or updated areas should be open by Labor Day. Thank you for your understanding.

Phase 4 of the state’s Restore Illinois plan is in effect. Daily hours are 7 am to sunset, with capacity limits. When capacity is reached, visitor outflow will be monitored before additional guests are admitted. Cantigny’s regular weekday parking fee of $5 per car applies, including weekends. Parking is free on the first Wednesday of the month, and free for Cantigny Park members at all times.

The Visitors Center and Cantigny Shop are open from 9 am to 5 pm. Capacity limits apply.

Bertie’s Bistro is closed for the season as of October 23.

The Visitors Center, Cantigny’s gardens, grounds, restrooms playground and tanks are accessible. The First Division Museum is open on a reservations-only basis. Please visit www.fdmuseum.org for details. McCormick House remains closed.

Park events with guest capacity above 25 are canceled, postponed or will take place online. Cantigny’s websites and social media channels offer digital experiences including special live events and museum tours. Please check the event calendar on this website.

This stage of Cantigny’s “phased” reopening is based on current guidance from the State of Illinois and public health agencies. All procedures are subject to change in accordance with state guidelines.

The health and safety of visitors, volunteers and staff members is our highest priority. Heightened cleaning and disinfecting procedures are in place, and guests are expected to practice social distancing. Face coverings are not required outside, but all visitors must wear a mask when inside the Visitors Center, First Division Museum, or park restrooms.

THANK YOU for helping us keep Cantigny Park healthy, safe and OPEN. We appreciate your cooperation!
