Safety Review
We received word from PDRMA (Park District Risk Management Agency) that our score on our 2014 Loss Control Review was 99.57 on a 100 point scale, a rating of "Excellence Level A!" The review is a comprehensive risk management assessment and education tool designed to measure the safety practices of park districts and special recreation agencies. Thank you to all of our staff & volunteers for their part in making our programs safe & fun!
