Statement regarding the reopening of Allerton Park

“I’m glad the university consented to my request to make more park space available to the people of Piatt County and central Illinois. Forcing so many people into such a small area with a single trail head entrance while restricting access to the acres upon acres of space throughout the rest of the park just didn’t make sense. I thank the University for listening and hope that we can all respect the safety guidelines that have been put in place while enjoying the wonder that is Allerton.”
