Cross safely- the pathway intersects at busy roads. Please make sure to use the cross walk and look both ways. Be visible- wear bright colors, stay on one side of the path and use caution at dawn and twilight. Hang up and walk- you are less likely to recognize traffic, passing bikes and runners and tripping hazards while on your cell phone. Walk dogs on leashes- it is a Park District Ordinance that all dogs must be leashed at all times. Where to access the Pathway Parks: • Park Central • Community Center • Nelson Sports Complex • RM Library • Kimball Hill Park • Florey Park to y a w h at P r u o “Y ” s s e n l l We Disc Golf North Salk Park, 3160 Owl Drive Disc golf is a game in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target.

The first hole is by the parking lot at North Salk Park and players continue toward the Nelson Sports Complex across the creek to the sled hill, up along the bike path to the Library and back across the creek.

Accreditation is a voluntary program that uses a set of standards to evaluate and identify agencies throughout the state that provide exceptional Park and Recreation services to their community to improve their quality of life. Weather Cancellations Local school closings/cancellations due to weather do not always affect the cancellation of Park District programs. Our Early Childhood programming will follow District 15 closing procedures for inclement weather. Youth basketball practices that take place at our local schools generally are canceled if District 15 is closed. For specific program and event cancellations, visit rmparks.org or call the facility in which your program takes place.
