Northlands Association for Special Recreation (NASR) is a cooperative

partnership between the Rockford, Freeport and Belvidere Park Districts

(referred to as member district). NASR programs are open to any

individual with disability-related special needs such as physical, mental

and developmental disabilities and persons with mental illness, behavior

disorders, visual and hearing impairments.

Member district residents are invited to participate in specialty/therapeutic (TR) programs offered through any member district

at the resident rate. For participation in Inclusion Services at a member district other than your own member district, you must

pay the non-resident rate for that specific program.
