The Tinley Park-Park District follows the Americans with Disabilities Act for the purpose of employment, programs, services, activities, and facilities.
The Tinley Park-Park District strives to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Guidelines (ADAAG) or 1991 standards published by the Department of Justice (DOJ), along with the 2010 standards developed by the US Access Board and published by the Department of Justice and the Illinois Accessibility Code (IAC), published by the State of Illinois, which can have more stringent requirements than the federal guidelines. The Park District has hired Recreation Accessibility Consultants of Hoffman Estates, IL, who performed a comprehensive audit for the Tinley Park-Park District in 2010 along with the creation of the ADA Transition Plan, which was a result of that audit. The plan assesses all Park District properties and identifies any accessibility barriers that exist.
If you or a member of your family needs special assistance or accommodations to participate in any Park District program, please indicate that need on the Park District registration form.
There are numerous recreational opportunities throughout Tinley Park and surrounding communities coordinated through SSSRA (South Suburban Parks and Recreation). Visit https://www.sssra.org for more information.

If you have any questions or concerns about access to parks or recreation regarding Americans with Disabilities, you may contact him/her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (708) 342-4200.
