AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES
The Kankakee Valley Park District Board of Commissioners has adopted a policy outlining the districtís intent to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The district will analyze and evaluate its parks, facilities, programs and services and take reasonable measures to ensure that people with disabilities are accommodated. A written procedure which individuals may use to file a grievance with the district has been established. A grievance may be filed if it is perceived that the district has failed to abide by the applicable provisions of ADA. The district desires all its residents, regardless of disabilities, to participate freely in its parks, facilities, programs and services.
It's already time to start putting a team together for the Kankakee Valley Park District's summer softball league. This year, we will be offering a men's, women's, and coed league. All information will be available at the park district office at 815-939-1311.
