Forever Young Photo

Say cheese! Next time you are visiting Simkus or Fountain View, please allow time for your photo to be taken at the service desk for safety purposes. If you register online or by mail, just stop by the service desk when you arrive for your next trip or event. Those who have a fitness or pool membership will not need to have their account updated with a new photo.

Fun for Everyone

The park district strives to provide trips and activities for everyone. Most Forever Young programs are accessible; however, participants using walkers or wheelchairs should confirm the trip location’s accessibility in advance. Use the “Activity Key” as a guide when determining if a program suits your capabilities. Indicate any accommodation requests on your registration form. Front bus seating may be reserved in advance for those with applicable medical special needs. Participants requesting front of bus seating should arrive fifteen minutes before departure time.
