ADA Compliance Initiative

To ensure that the Park District complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act, in Spring 2012, we began a survey process conducted by Recreation Accessibility Consultants. 56 parks and facilities were reviewed, and results have been compiled in a 6-volume document that is available at the Administrative Office, 620 E. Riverside Ave. The cover letter from RAC President John McGovern and summary letter appear below. For more information, please contact Ryan Raleigh at 422-5911.
