Northwest Special Recreation Association (NWSRA)

The Hoffman Estates Park District is proud to be a member of Northwest Special Recreation Association (NWSRA).Throughout the northwest suburbs, NWSRA is the leader in providing outstanding recreational opportunities for children and adults with disabilities. NWSRA’s team of full-time Therapeutic Recreation professionals and trained part-time staff offer a multitude of year-round program offerings including sports, camping, social programs and much more. Having fun, being included, making friends, learning new things and going new places are just a few of the benefits of NWSRA programs! Inclusion assistance is provided by NWSRA to those individuals who wish to participate in their home Park District program. When registering, the parent of an individual with a disability should inform the park district (and NWSRA, if desired) of any accommodation needed in order for the individual to successfully participate in the program. The Park District staff will then contact NWSRA for assistance with the accommodation.

Throughout the year, the organization hosts a variety of fundraising events that help support accessible transportation, general programs, inclusion opportunities,the Kevin T.
