Special Needs and Inclusion

The Elmhurst Park District is committed to promoting and encouraging positive interactions among participants with and without disabilities.  Staff members are available to assist participants with accommodations needed for success in and enjoyment of our programs.

If you need inclusion assistance, please contact the Wagner Community Center at (630) 993-8901.

The Elmhurst Park District is also a member of the Gateway Special Recreation Association, which was formed through an intergovernmental agreement and serves as an extension of the Park Districts of Elmhurst, Burr Ridge, Oak Brook, Pleasant Dale, Westchester and York Center, and the Villages of Hinsdale and Willowbrook.  Gateway SRA contracts the services of the Ray Graham Association for People with Disabilities, a non-profit agency, to provide recreation programs.  For more information on inclusion and special needs programming, visit the Special Needs & Inclusion page.
