Inclusion with WSRA Special Recreation

Gurnee Park District strives to ensure all the necessary accommodations are available to provide recreational opportunities to the entire community. To help us achieve this, we partner with Warren Special Recreation Association (WSRA) to provide support for the individuals that participate in our programs. For those that may need one on one assistance to help individuals with special needs participate in activities, please indicate a special need exists in your activity registration. If you feel your child has this need, we can work to secure an Inclusion Aid from WSRA, please be sure to register at least three (3) weeks prior to the start of your child’s activity so a proper companion can be secured. Availability of companions may vary, and certain criteria must be met for this support, but early registration is the most important way to allow enough time to secure this assistance.

In addition to support from WSRA, the Gurnee Park District provides accessible accommodations at its facilities, parks, and playgrounds to maximize access to all of our customers.
