Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) took effect in January 1990 and the Roselle Park District complies with the legislation’s purpose which prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability. The Roselle 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. The ADA requires that recreation programs offered by the park district be available in the most integrated setting appropriate for each individual. If you have questions about Roselle’s commitment regarding the ADA policy or believe you have been unfairly discriminated against by the Park District, please contact Lynn McAteer, Executive Director, at 630-894-1027.

Special Accommodations

Persons with disabilities are encouraged to contact Lynn McAteer, Executive Director, at 630-894-1027 about special accommodations needed for the enjoyment of Park District programs.

Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA)

Community-Based Recreational Programs & Inclusion Services for Park District Programs

The Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) is a cooperative extension of the Roselle Park District, as well as eight other area park districts. They offer more than 1,500 programs, trips, and special events to over 8,000 individuals with special needs each year.

Programs range from drama to dance and include a variety of Special Olympics sports and adapted sports, as well as programs for individuals with physical challenges. In addition to our own programs, we also offer support to anyone with special needs enrolled in a Roselle Park District program.

The WDSRA Foundation is the association’s fundraising arm and welcomes donations from individuals, companies, and service clubs. These donations help offset the cost of programs. For more information on the foundation, please call (630)681-0962 or visit


Inclusion services are designed to provide the least restrictive environment while offering the maximum opportunity to participate in regular Park District programs. 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 or contact the program supervisor. Two weeks’ advance notice is requested for inclusion support.
