Park District Policies
A $25 service charge will be assessed on all checks returned due to non-sufficient funds (NSF).
Photo & Video Policy
On occasion, the District staff or contractors may take pictures or video footage of participants in our programs, classes or events, or of people in the District's parks. These pictures may be used for Park District's website, brochures, pamphlets, videos, flyers or for media promotion. Residents are encouraged to submit photos and/or video footage for the Park District to use in its informational materials.
Each year, vandalism costs the Park District thousands of dollars. Higher costs of maintenance, repair and clean up of park areas can be avoided only with YOUR help. Should you see vandalism occurring, please call the Vernon Hills Police at 9-1-1.
Park District Police
Through a cooperative agreement with the Village of Vernon Hills, all parks and park facilities are policed by the Vernon Hills Police Department. Police are radio dispatched and may be summoned by calling 911.
The Park District staff would like to encourage your club or group to invite one of our staff to your next meeting. Let us keep you informed about Park District happenings. Contact the Communications Manager at (847) 996-6933.
Americans With Disabilities
The Vernon Hills Park District will comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination in the provision of programs, services or activities to individuals with disabilities. We invite any participant with a special need to contact our staff or our SRA staff, upon registration, so that a smooth inclusion can occur. If you have any questions regarding the Park District's ADA policy, or believe you have been unfairly discriminated against in the provision of programs, services or activities of the Vernon Hills Park District, please contact Tom Ritter, Superintendent of Recreation at (847) 996-6802.
