(posted October 13, 2014)

 
This fully updated 7th edition of the Illinois Park District Law Handbook consolidates this body of law into a single user-friendly volume that explains the complex laws and codes that govern local park districts.

Thousands of bills have been signed into law since IAPD published the 6th edition in 2010. Many of these legal changes impact the day-to-day operations of park and recreation agencies. No park commissioner or park and recreation professional should be without their own copy of IAPD's most popular publication.
