Ray’s Bay, SEASPAR’s newest multi-sensory room, features a unique assortment of state-of-the-art equipment designed to vitalize the senses. Soothing sound waves and visual effects create a calming atmosphere, which can be enjoyed from the comfort of the room’s large rocking chair, comfort cabin, or lighted waterbed. Guests with energy to spare can interact with various devices intended to spark curiosity as well as joy.

Ray’s Bay Multi-Sensory Room is located in the lower level of the Grand Avenue Community Center. A waiting room, complete with a sitting area, is available for guests while participants play.


In 2020, SEASPAR, in partnership with the Village of Western Springs, built Ray’s Bay, SEASPAR’s second multi-sensory room. The room was named after Ray Jasica, a former SEASPAR Board member and lifetime supporter.
