All of the Village's facilities have accessibility ratings of 2, 3, or 4, with the exception of Unger Park which carries an accessibility ranking of 1 due to the grade change and lack of paved surfaces to access any features within the park.
While most of the recreation facilities include elements that are handicapped accessible, many of the routes to reach such facilities are lacking in compliance.
