**All patrons are highly recommended to wear masks indoors**

On July 29, 2021, Cook County entered into the substantial spread category of COVID-19 and its variants.  Based on recommendations from the CDC and IDPH, we highly recommend that all patrons, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask in all public indoor settings until further notice. Please remember that some facilities serve high-risk groups including seniors and school-age children who are not vaccinated.  Beginning August 2, all children 12 years and under and their instructors are required to wear face masks at all times while indoors.  Additionally, all individuals, regardless of vaccine status, in our school-related programs, must wear masks at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.

Northwest Special Recreation Association

Northwest Special Recreation Association

NWSRA exists to provide outstanding opportunities through recreation for people with disabilities.  Celebrate ability throughout the Northwest Suburbs!  Join the celebration!  The team of full time Therapeutic Recreation professionals and trained part-time staff offer safe, fun and quality year round recreation opportunities to individuals with disabilities of all ages and ability levels.

Inclusion assistance provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in their home park district program.  When registering, the parent of the individual should inform the park district (and NWSRA, if desired) of any accommodation needed in order for the individual to successfully enjoy the program.  The park district staff will then contact NWSRA for assistance with the accommodation.
