SEASPAR’s New Lisle Facility to Open in Lisle Park District Recreation Center
Wonders, the multi-sensory room at the new SEASPAR Lisle facility, contains interactive equipment that pleases the senses in a variety of unique and soothing ways. Participants can feel the vibration of the music as it plays through the Learning Chair, follow the motion of the bubbles as they move and change colors within the bubble tubes, make music with the wave of their hand, enjoy relaxing aromas, and make water ripple as they dip their toes into the pond projected on the floor.
Since 1976, SEASPAR has provided year-round dynamic programs and quality recreation services for people with disabilities residing in its eleven community service areas in the western suburbs, including the Lisle Park District. The EAGLES program, just one of the many opportunities SEASPAR offers, is a your-round life skills enrichment program designed to assist adults with disabilities, ages 18 through 50, transition to life in the community. For additional information about Wonders, EAGLES and SEASPAR, please visit SEASPAR.org.
As part of SEASPAR's continuum of recreation programs, inclusive services are provided for residents who wish to participate in general recreation programs at the Lisle Park District. For many individuals with disabilities, participation alongside their peers without disabilities is a beneficial and rewarding experience.

Those requesting an inclusion aide for Lisle Park District programs should contact the Recreation Center at 630-964-3410 at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the class.
