In 1979 the Sycamore Park District joined with the DeKalb Park District to create the DeKalb Sycamore Association of Special Recreation (DSASR) to offer recreational opportunities to community members with special needs.

This effort continues today through the Kishwaukee Special Recreation Association and five partner districts: DeKalb Park District, Flagg-Rochelle Park District, Genoa Township Park District, Sandwich Park District, and Sycamore Park District
