Des Peres Parks and Recreation Department invites people of all abilities to participate in our programs and events. Please notify us when you register or at least three business days in advance of the program/event date if accommodations due to a disability are needed to facilitate your participation and/or if there are medications or allergies of which we should be aware. If an inclusion support person is needed to assist the program participant with a disability, it may take two weeks or more to provide this type of accommodation. If we are unable to meet your needs, there is a grievance procedure available for ADA concerns. For assistance in arranging accommodations for participation or to notify us of medical concerns, please contact Terri Johnson, CTRS/CPRP, Executive Director of Municipal Partners for Inclusive Recreation, at 314-835-6157 (V) or dial 711 to use Relay Missouri, or email her to discuss your participation.
