BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS

Dear Neighbors,

Winter at the park district is filled with family fun and adult adventures. We have so many activities to fill your schedule! No need for your kids to try to stay up late to ring in the new year.

Gather your friends and neighbors and all your kids to celebrate at our Noon Year’s Eve Party. We supply the space, a DJ dance party and balloon drop as you count down to the new year at noon. Do you want to keep your kids busy this winter and encourage them to get some exercise indoors? Then sign them up for our sports programs held at Sachs Recreation Center. Our classes are a great introduction to a variety of sports options, and while your children are in classes, you can take advantage of getting a Sachs Membership and working out at the same time as their class.

Sachs Recreation Center will be hopping this winter as pickleball lessons and leagues continue to grow in popularity. If you haven’t tried it yet, we offer drop-in programs Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8am-12pm. Practicing over the winter will get you ready to try out the new courts at Shepard Park in the spring.

Memberships and Personal Training Sessions at Sachs are also great holiday gifts. And with motivation like a Weight Loss Team Challenge and Accountability Series focusing on eating habits, you are sure to find the right fit to Get Fit this winter.

At the Patty Turner Center Member’s Winter Party, guests will dress to the nine’s, enjoy an atrium reception, plated meal and

the swing dance music of Jazz Spectrum. The night is sure to be unforgettable. We are thrilled to have welcomed over a hundred new members to the Patty Turner Center this year. As we learn more about new member interests, we will introduce new programs like those featured in this guide such as Pop Art a Go-Go and Chinese New Year Delights. Check out the adult program section on pages 38-43 and the Special Events section on pages 12 and 13 to choose your favorites.

Do you want to golf at Deerfield Golf Club every week from April until October in 2023? Then be sure to apply for the Permanent Tee Time Lottery before December 4, 2022. More details and applications can be accessed on the golf course website. You can work on your swing this winter at the Deerfield Golf Club with the return of our Golf Simulator. Following the closing of the course in late fall, you can rent a time or schedule a private lesson. Either way, you will be transported to a variety of challenging courses without ever leaving Deerfield. Visit deerfieldgolf.org for more information.

Stay Safe & Be Well, Board of Commissioners

DEERFIELD

DISTRICT’S MISSION STATEMENT

DEERSPRING SPRAYGROUND

We were thrilled to provide a couple of weeks of enjoyment at the Deerspring Sprayground when the renovation was completed in late summer. We can't wait for you to enjoy this new amenity next summer!

SHEPARD PARK RENOVATION

The Shepard Park Renovation Project began in August and includes renovating the 2 ballfields on the west side of the park and adding parking and 6 pickleball courts along the north side of Hackberry Road. Based on weather conditions this fall we anticipate adding temporary lines to the courts and in the spring when the warm weather returns, adding the permanent court striping.

In September of 2022, the park district adopted a 5-year Strategic Plan with 5 Core Strategies, 21 goals and 63 objectives. The Core Strategies include Organizational Excellence, Service and Outreach, Park Enhancements, Facility Enhancements and Environmental Stewardship. The plan will again provide guidance for the district as it looks to provide optimal services, programs, parks and facilities to the community. Updates will be provided every 6 months beginning in March of 2023.

Thanks to all of our community members who provided feedback through survey and evaluation instruments, focus groups, suggestions to staff and requests for services. That feedback was incorporated into the strategic plan. The strategic plan and biannual updates can be seen at deerfieldparks.org/about-us

PRIORITY REGISTRATION FOR RESIDENTS

People who live within the boundaries of the Deerfield Park District always have first priority in our registration process. However, having a Deerfield address does not always mean that you are a resident of our Park District. Program brochures are typically sent to the 60015 zip code, but this can include areas that are not part of the Deerfield Park District.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Residents experiencing difficulty paying program fees should contact the Park District.

RESIDENT & SPECIAL SCHOOL DISTRICT #109 AND #113 RATES

Resident rates will apply to those who live within the park district boundaries. If a participant does not live within the park district boundaries but enrolls in a program that is held at a District 109 or 113 school and they reside in that school district, then they pay the resident rate.

• A valid driver’s license or photo-ID containing your current address. Proof of residency needs to be brought in to Jewett Park Community Center, Patty Turner Center, Sachs Recreation Center or Deerfield Golf Club. We do this to ensure that the registration procedures remain fair. Thank you for your compliance and assistance.

Those who register for our programs and improperly use a Deerfield address are removed from the class and no refund or transfer fee is provided. Non-residents pay a higher fee per program.

The Board of Park Commissioners has a policy that no person will be denied access to recreation programs or facilities because of an inability to pay fees. Please know that the program is strictly confidential and is closely monitored by the Director of Recreation. We appreciate your support.

SERVICES FOR RESIDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Deerfield Park District is a partner with Northern Suburban Special Recreation Association (NSSRA). Formed in 1970, NSSRA is an extension of ten park districts, two cities and one village in the northern suburbs of Chicago providing and facilitating recreation programs and services for children, teens and adults with disabilities. NSSRA offers recreation, sport, cultural and social programs and events available year-round, creating new experiences, opportunities for skill development, leisure time, and perhaps most importantly, friendship. NSSRA has been creating an environment of belonging through play since 1970, and has the distinction of being the first Special Recreation Association in the country. We believe that everyone should have the chance to try something new. This means you have the opportunity to participate in any one of NSSRA’s 500 annual programs, or that you have the opportunity to participate in one of the Deerfield Park District programs with the assistance of an NSSRA Inclusion companion.

inclusion Services

Deerfield Park District program Inclusion services are available to residents with special needs at no additional cost to the family. Inclusion services may include, staff training, program modifications/adaptations, modified equipment and program observations.

MISSION STATEMENT

To provide outstanding parks, services, facilities and recreation programs that enrich lives, promote healthy living and inspire memorable experiences.

PARK DISTRICT PHILOSOPHY

The Park Board recognizes the need to provide and maintain sufficient and attractive parks, open space, recreation facilities and programs to serve equitably, and without prejudice, all the people of the Park District in the provision of leisure time activities.

Every opportunity shall be afforded, within financial limits, to plan, procure, develop and maintain park and recreation resources, and to provide leadership for the wholesome and constructive use of leisure time. The provisions of quality recreational services in the most efficient manner, at the least possible cost, and without significantly duplicating the efforts of other agencies, will be emphasized at all times. This includes the development of cooperative agreements with other agencies directly and indirectly involved with leisure services in the District.

The provision of recreation, park and conservation services must be considered as a positive opportunity for people of the District to share with each other, to develop leadership capacities, to learn skills for present and future enjoyment, and to emphasize responsibilities to each other as well as to the community.

KEEP OUR PARKS BEAUTIFUL

To provide safe, healthy and aesthetically pleasing parks, we engage in the limited use of lawn care products as part of an integrated pest management program. A one-time annual application of herbicide to park and school sites is usually completed between Aug. 15 – Nov. 1 of each year. We publicize the date of the application and inform the appropriate school sites and residents who have asked to be advised of this process.

PARTICIPANT CONDUCT

The Deerfield Park District reserves the right to suspend, expel or deny participation in any program or facility to any person whose behavior materially interferes or disrupts the quality of those offerings, the enjoyment of them by other participants or the ability of staff to conduct or manage the activities or facilities.

A child’s parent or guardian will be notified of the first incident; the second incident shall require the presence of a parent at a meeting with the instructor and a Park District administrator/supervisor; a third incident may result in the expulsion or suspension of the child from the program, event or facility.

If a child engages in behavior(s) which may result in bodily harm to others, an immediate meeting with the parent may be called. If such behavior warrants it, immediate suspension or expulsion may result. Temporary suspension from participation due to misconduct will not entitle participant to a refund.

An adult shall receive one verbal or written warning. The second incident may result in suspension from the program, event or facility. If an adult physically strikes a person or object or throws an object at another person, or takes any other action that may pose a real threat of bodily harm to others, or is verbally abusive to others, s/he may immediately be suspended or expelled from the program or facility.

PHOTO PERMISSION

Our staff or designees often take pictures or video at programs and events. Photographers from print or other media outlets may also take pictures or video on occasion. We welcome the coverage and hope you do too; it is frequently how the public learns what is happening at the Park District. If you prefer your family members’ pictures not be taken, please notify us in writing. NOTE: If you do see a photo posted to our websites or social media pages of you or your family member that you would like removed, please email Sherry@deerfieldparks.org

GENERAL INFORMATION
The safety of our participants, visitors and staff is our top priority. We will continue to establish protocols based on COVID-19 guidelines established by Federal, State of Illinois, county and local entities. Thank you for your cooperation. Jewett Park Playground

INSURANCE

Deerfield Park District cannot assume responsibility for injuries or accidents occurring at programs, activities, parks and facilities within our jurisdiction. To do so would make our program and user fees prohibitive. Certain activities, facilities and equipment may, when used improperly, cause harm or personal injury. We make every effort to notify you of potentially dangerous situations and to provide rules for the proper use of equipment and facilities. You can avoid injury by following the rules, using good sense and being considerate of both Park District property and others using it.

EMERGENCY CLOSING

There may be times when weather, road conditions or facility malfunctions dictate that programs and/or services must be canceled, or temporarily postponed or entire facilities closed. The park district will communicate to patrons via the park district website deerfieldparks.org. Whenever School District 109 cancels school due to snow related weather conditions, all Deerfield Park District Preschool classes and all programs held at school sites will also be canceled. Closing other park district facilities or canceling classes will be made on a case by case basis.

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR

Please respect the rights and property of neighbors of our parks. Use public sidewalks/pathways. Drive carefully in lots, driveways and nearby streets. Trees, bushes, fences, etc., should not be used as bathrooms. Keep your dog on a leash, remain on public property, clean up pet waste, and place trash in park receptacles. To report vandalism, call the Deerfield Police Non-emergency line, 847-945-8636

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT

Our Park District and other public agencies are subject to the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which prohibits discrimination in the services, programs or facilities provided to individuals with disabilities. If you believe that, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, special assistance may be required when participating in a program, using a facility or receiving a service, please call Laura McCarty, Director of Recreation at 847-572-2615

THORGUARD

GENERAL

GENERAL INFORMATION

ThorGuard Lightning Prediction Systems are installed at all parks, pools and schools in Deerfield, from April through November. Horns are tested the first Tuesday of each of these months, at 10 AM. Should you hear the horn or see the strobe light at other times—or any time lightning seems possible—be sure to seek shelter. The system is meant to warn the public that conditions are right for possible lightning danger. This system is not 100 percent accurate, as it operates on radio waves which are variable. As not every unit will go off simultaneously, the public is asked to please use common sense when conditions appear threatening, even if ThorGuard warnings are not heard or seen.

Follow these warnings for safety:

• One prolonged horn blast signifies a strong lightning risk.

• The strobe light signals a continuing lightning alert condition.

• Three short horn blasts (and ceasing of strobe light illumination) signal it may be safe to return to the area, but use discretion.

INFECTIOUS DISEASES, FOOD ALLERGIES, MEDICATION, ILLNESS

Infectious Diseases: To prevent the spread of communicable diseases, such as strep, pink eye and fifth’s disease, parents should report any diagnosed cases to the Park District office. If exposure to other participants occurred, a notification is sent home.

Food Allergies: Many of our preschool, as well as cooking and other classes, will serve food; therefore, it is imperative that you notify the full-time Recreation Supervisor of any food allergies or dietary restrictions your child may have.

Medication: If your child requires medication (inhaler, epi-pen, etc.) during class, medication administration forms must be completed. Please call our registration office (847-945-0650) for details.

Illness: Please do not attend class nor send children who are ill to class.
