Many communities throughout Illinois have Park Districts that provide recreation opportunities for their citizens. Many of these same Park Districts have a Special Recreation component to facilitate the inclusion of people with disabilities. Some Special Recreation programs emphasize support to participate in the scheduled activities of the community and Park District. Others provide additional opportunities designed to meet the specific needs of the people with disabilities in their communities.
Special Recreation Associations for your area can be found on the Special Recreation Association Network of Illinois website at www.specialrecreation.org.
