Did you know . . .
Did you know that the Park District has some equipment for use by the disabled that we are able to loan out? Yes, we have wheelchairs and walkers for those temporary needs. Call the Park District phone number (217) 648-2611 to find what is available at this time and how you can obtain help. There is generally
no charge for this equipment.
Also, if you happen to have a wheelchair, walker, crutches, or hospital-type bed that you no longer need, consider donating it to the Park District so that someone in need can make use of it. Thanks!
