page 63 general information INSURANCE ATTENTION DOG OWNERS AFFILIATE PROGRAMS The Lombard Park District does not provide medical insurance coverage for individuals who participate in District programs or use District facilities. To do so would make programs and user fees cost prohibitive. Dogs are required by Park District ordinance to be on a leash at all times. We also ask owners to refrain from walking their dogs on athletic fields, children's play areas and paths, and to pick up after their pets. Several independent organizations use Park District fields and facilities, and/or provide special programs not offered by the Park District. PHOTOGRAPHS PROGRAM FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 4500 Belmont Road, Downers Grove Lombard Park District residents qualify for resident rates at the Downers Grove Recreation and Fitness Center. Pick up your resident verification letter at Sunset Knoll Recreation Center. Present this letter when you register for an annual pass. For more information, call (630) 620-7322. The Park District may videotape or photograph people enjoying programs, special events, parks and facilities. These photographs are for District publications, Web site or cable programs. They are the sole property of the Lombard Park District and are used at its discretion. The local newspapers may take photographs of program participants for use in the newspaper and online.
