Service Animal Protocol
Use of Service Animals on Park District Property
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), The Wheaton Park District allows service animals to access most public areas within its property. Service animals must be harnessed, leashed or tethered, unless the devices interfere with the animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. The patron must remain in control of the animal at all times.
Service Animal as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act refers to any dog or miniature horse that is individually trained to work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task performed must be directly related to the person’s disability.
Service animals whose sole function is to provide emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
