West Chicago Park District and the ADA

The West Chicago Park District will make reasonable accommodations in recreation programs to enable participation by an individual with a disability that meets essential eligibility requirements for that leisure program and facilities. The ADA requires that recreation programs offered by the Park District be available in the most integrated setting appropriate for each individual. Persons with disabilities are encouraged to contact the park district at 630.231.9474 about special accommodations needed for the enjoyment of park district programs. Those who use the Telecommunications Device for the Deaf (TDD) may reach the park district by calling 800.735.2962 If you have questions about west Chicago Park District's commitment regarding the ADA policy or you believe you have been unfairly discriminated against by the Park District, please call us at 630.231.9474.
