General Notice Pesticide Application Notification

The Park District of Highland Park strives for quality and safety when designing and providing a maintenance program for your parks. Managing pests is only one aspect, yet an important one, of the overall management course. Our approach to controlling pests is termed IPM or Integrated Pest Management. IPM is a system utilizing a great deal of observation and multiple tactics for maintaining landscapes and controlling pests of turf grass, ornamentals and woodlands. By using IPM, we meet our objectives of maximizing cultural, biological and environmental controls while minimizing chemical use. Occasionally, chemical means are necessary. When these are used on Park District grounds, notification is made through posting of signs in the area, as well as contacting residents, by phone or email, listed on our “turf care notification registry.� If you would like to be added to the notification registry, please call the Director of Parks at 847.579.3130.

The Park District of Highland Park continually strives to reduce such risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions that are designed to protect the participants’ safety. However, participants and parents/guardians of minors registering for this program/activity must recognize that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreational activities/programs.

Despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury when participating in any recreational activity/program. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. Depending on the particular activity, participants must understand that certain risks, dangers and injuries due to inclement weather, slipping, falling, poor skill level or conditioning, carelessness, horseplay, unsportsmanlike conduct, premises defects, inadequate or defective equipment, inadequate supervision, instruction or officiating, and all other circumstances inherent to indoor and outdoor recreational activities/programs exist. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for the Park District of Highland Park to guarantee absolute safety. Waiver and Release of All Claims and Assumption of Risk Please read this form carefully and be aware that in signing this form and participating in this program/activity, you will be expressly assuming the risk and legal liability and waiving and releasing all claims for injuries, damages or loss which you or your minor child/ward might sustain as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with and associated with this program/activity (including transportation services/ vehicle operation, when provided). I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury to participants in this program/ activity, and I voluntarily agree to assume the full risk of any and all injuries, damages or loss, regardless of severity, that my minor child/ward or I may sustain as a result of said participation. I further agree to waive and relinquish all claims I or my minor child/ward may have (or accrue to me or my child/ward) as a result of participating in this program/activity against the Park District of Highland Park, including its officials, agents, volunteers and employees (hereinafter collectively referred as “Park District of Highland Park”). I do hereby fully release and forever discharge the Park District of Highland Park from any and all claims for injuries, damages, or loss that my minor child/ward or I may have or which may accrue to me or my minor child/ward and arising out of, connected with, or in any way associated with this program/activity. Participation will be denied if the signature of adult participant or parent/guardian and date are not on this waiver. Release and Hold Harmless Agreement As a participant in the program, I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury, and I agree to assume the full risk of any injuries, damages or losses which I (or my minor child/ward) may sustain, as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with or associated with such program. I agree to waive and relinquish all claims I (or my minor child/ward) may have as a result of participating in the program against the Park District of Highland Park and its officers, agents, servants and employees. I do hereby fully release and discharge the Park District of Highland Park and its officers, agents, servants and employees from any and all claims for injuries, damages or losses which I (or my minor child/ward) may have or which may accrue to me on account of participation in the program.

The Park District of Highland Park is a partner in the Northern Suburban Special Recreation Association (NSSRA). As a partnership of ten park districts and three municipalities, NSSRA provides and facilitates year-round recreation programs and services for children, teens, adults and seniors with disabilities who live in the partner communities. We offer more than 700 programs and events throughout the year. We serve approximately 1,500 individuals with disabilities in creative arts, sports, drama, dance, cooking and other areas through our inclusion, cooperative and traditional programs, as well as outreach services, in-home programming, leisure skill development and the summer program offered with the Northern Suburban Special Education District (NSSED).

Some people with disabilities choose to participate in park district or recreation department programs with people without disabilities. NSSRA provides training, support staff and assistance to partner park districts and local recreation departments so inclusive recreation can be enjoyed by all. NSSRA support can be in the form of extra staff, sign language interpreters, adapting rules and policies, behavior management support, disability awareness training, accessibility and accommodations, or other services necessary to include people with disabilites in community recreation.

NSSRA offers Cooperative Programs with its partner park districts, cities and villages or with other community agencies. Often Cooperative Programs provide skill-based programs, vacation and holiday programming, camps and more. NSSRA provides assistance, based upon participation numbers and needs. Day camps are offered cooperatively with special education and other agencies for children with developmental and other disabilities, as well as camps for children who are deaf and hard of hearing. Other Cooperative Programs run in conjunction with local assisted living agencies and afterschool programs.

NSSRA offers more than 150 traditional programs and events locally each season. The Association utilizes therapeutic recreation professional staff members and other staff with specialized training and certifications, along with part-time leaders and volunteers. Staff members work closely with participants, families, schools and others, to ensure quality programming.

Adult Fitness Classes Welcome to TRX® TRX® Basics TRX® Training is a revolutionary method of leveraged body weight exercise. Safely perform hundreds of exercises that build power, strength, flexibility, balance, mobility, and prevent injuries, all at the intensity you choose.

TRX® exercises allow for the use of multiple planes of motion and work multiple muscles and joints simultaneously. Traditional weight training often only works one muscle at a time and the TRX® forces you to use normal coordinated muscle effort, used to complete most everyday activities. Plus the TRX® is fun and different, and we promise you won’t be bored. Register for the course that fits your level. If you are interested in 1-on1 TRX® training, call the fitness coordinator at 847.579.4050 to be set up with an instructor.
