Community-Based Recreational Programs and Inclusion Services for Park District Programs
The Western DuPage Special Recreation Association is an extension of the Carol Stream Park District and provides year- round recreational programs to individuals of all ages with special needs. Carol Stream Park District partners with the Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) for inclusion services that are designed to provide the least restrictive environment while providing the maximum opportunity to participate in regular Park District programs. WDSRA provides fun, engaging recreational and social programs, trips, and special events for children, teens, and adults with special needs. Programs are structured to allow everyone to participate at their own ability level. Through WDSRA each individual has the opportunity to grow personally, connect with their community and discover their potential. There is no charge for WDSRA’s support. To register for services, simply indicate that special accommodations are needed on the Park District registration form. If you have questions, contact WDSRA at 630-681-0962. Two-week advance notice is requested for inclusion support.
No participant or spectator shall, on the basis of race, sex, creed, national origin or disability, be denied equal access to programs, activities, services or benefits, or be limited in the exercise of any right, privilege, advantage or opportunity.
Carol Stream Park District provides programs, activities and facilities without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, religion, national origin, veteran status, age, handicap or disability, sexual orientation or gender.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability. Carol Stream 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. If you have questions or believe you have been unfairly discriminated against by the Park District, call 630-784-6100. Those who use the Telecommunications Device for the Deaf use 800-526-0844.
We offer financial assistance for qualified Carol Stream Park District resident children and seniors. Confidential applications are available at Fountain View and Simkus Recreation Centers.
