ADA/ Inclusion

The Bensenville Park District complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and strongly supports inclusion. Inclusion looks at the needs, interests, and abilities of the individuals instead of focusing on their special needs. In partnership with our Special Recreation Association, NEDSRA, reasonable accommodations are provided to ensure successful participation in our programs.

Through our partnership with Northeast DuPage Special Recreation Association (NEDSRA), individuals with a disability are offered over 600 recreational opportunities each year. If you or someone you know has a disability, contact NEDSRA today at 630-620-4500 or www.nedsra.org for information about recreation programs and services. All ages and ability levels served.

When registering for a program, please inform our customer service staff if you, or a family member, require assistance related to the ADA. If you have any ADA related questions please call 630-766-7015.

 


 

ADA Transition Plan

While the Bensenville Park District partners with Northeast DuPage Special Recreation Association (NEDSRA) to provide programs for people with disabilities, the Park District strives to provide equal access to all aspects of its services whether it be recreation programs, informal use of facilities and parks, printed material, website information, or employment. To do this an ADA Transition Plan was needed.

The Park District’s ADA Audit and Transition Plan, completed by The WT Group of Hoffman Estates, in consultation with Park District staff, addresses all aspects of Park District Accessibility. The plan describes the specific barriers at each Park District property and describes how each barrier can be addressed, including the use of best practices. The audit and plan serves as a guide to ensure the district continues to be in compliance with ADA regulations. Park District staff is prioritizing the findings, developing cost estimates for implantation, and incorporate the transition plan into the development of capital plans and individual staff work plans.
