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.
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.
