Dear Residents of the Itasca Park District, When you enter the lobby of the recreation center you will notice several large, round plaques that represent the Itasca Park District as being a Gold Medal Finalist for the National Recreation and Park Association for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management Award. In addition you will see 3 plaques naming the Itasca Park District as winner in Class V, population 30,000 and below.

This past September your park district was announced the winner for the third time. Glencoe, Illinois, Homewood-Flossmoor, Illinois and Windsor, Colorado were the three other finalist in Class V. Previous years of receiving the Gold Medal were 2003 and 2009. We were the only Illinois district in all categories this year to be honored with the Gold Medal. You may think "What's the big deal"? In parks and recreation IT IS A BIG DEAL. The Gold Medal Award is the Academy Award for park districts. The panel of judges looks at the district's accomplishments, facilities, parks, programs, future plans, grant awards, economic stability and intergovernmental cooperation. A video is submitted with a visual presentation of the district's attributes. To be recognized on a national level says volumes for the Itasca Park District.

Dissecting Owl Pellets Learn about the eating habits of the owls living at the Nature Center. Do you know what an owl pellet is? Owls usually swallow their prey whole, and they regurgitate what they cannot digest. See the various owls we have, the kind of food they eat, and dissect a pellet to see if we can figure out from the bones what the prey was. Anyone 8 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Mail-in registration for the Fitness Center and Waterpark passes will not be accepted. Itasca Park District Residents will need proof of residency and children in their household to register for the first time since December 1, 2014. Waivers In accordance with Recreation Department policy, all program participants must sign a hold-harmless agreement prior to participation in Department sponsored programs. The waiver must be signed by adults participating in adult programs, and by a parent or legal guardian for children under 18 years of age.

In Case of Oops! Complete details of program policies, procedures, and guidelines are sometimes omitted from the program brochures because of space limitations. Also, errors in days, times, registration requirements and fees may occur. We apologize for any errors that may appear in the brochure. We thank you for your patience and understanding when these situations arise.

A. All requests for refunds must be submitted in person or by phone two business days prior to the first class meeting or practice of program. Trips require reservations weeks ahead of time and therefore do not allow us to refund. Please see staff for individual trip policies. B. Individuals requesting refunds with two or more business days notice prior to the first class, meeting, or practice will receive a 100% refund, less $10 for administrative costs. C. No refunds will be issued for any programs within two days of the first meeting of a program, unless a physician’s excuse is presented. Refunds requested for medical reasons will be prorated from the time the request is received. D. A refund will not be given to programs that cost less than $15. The amount minus the $10 fee will be applied to another class or a voucher given for future use.

Insurance Policy The Itasca Park District does not provide medical coverage for injuries suffered while participating in park district programs, or while using park facilities. The park district, therefore, cannot assume responsibility for personal injury for persons participating in recreation programs or using facilities. Persons are advised to make provisions for this coverage in their family insurance program.

Fee Information

Due to liability concerns, all individuals wishing to participate in any park district program must pay the registration fee listed in the brochure prior to the start of the first class. Any individual who is unable to pay the registration fee must contact the Superintendent of Recreation to set up a payment plan. No phone registration will be accepted.

Cooperation

The park district wishes to acknowledge the cooperation of the Village of Itasca and the Itasca School District #10 for enabling the park district to provide numerous year-round recreational activities. The park district is permitted to use the school facilities when not used by the schools. For this reason there may be occasional changes in the schedule.
