THEY’RE YOUR METROPARKS.
AND EVERYONE’S INVITED.

What’s so great about the Metroparks? They’re here for everyone. That’s why ensuring accessibility across the Huron-Clinton Metroparks system is such an important part of the work we do. Over recent years, we’ve increased our attention to accessibility issues. Today’s Metroparks are the most accessible they’ve ever been. So be sure to explore your options for a fun, safe and healthy visit to Southeast Michigan’s 25,000 acre playground.

ACCESSIBILITY

The Metroparks are committed to removing barriers, creating access, improving access and increasing recreation opportunities for all.  As we look to the future, we will develop, update and improve facilities to meet or exceed ADA requirements. And we’ll look for ways to remove barriers to access so that individuals of all abilities have equitable access to Metroparks facilities, programs, services and activities. 

Many facilities within the Metroparks are already accessible and can provide an enjoyable experience for visitors of varying abilities. For those facilities that fall short of full accessibility, we have created our ADA Transition Plan, which identifies where improvements can be made and barriers removed. Click here to review the ADA Transition Plan.

On the website, you can click on the accessibility icon to open a plug-in that provides accessibility adjustments for your screen.  The icon can be found in the lower left of each page of the website.

As you plan your visit, please explore the accessibility section of each Metropark park page and each Interpretive Center page to learn more about accessibility, feature and amenities.

Accessibility Accommodations

There may be times when our facilities or programs might not meet your needs and you would like to request an accommodation. If you need a specific accommodation, we ask for a two-week lead time before your visit so we can best address your needs. If your request is received less than two weeks ahead, all efforts will be made to fulfill the request, but it is not guaranteed. Barriers will be addressed on a case-by-case basis for solutions offered to individuals with cognitive disabilities. 

To make an accommodations request, please call or email: 

If you’re unsure of the park you need an accommodation at, please use our general contact:
