The Metroparks Commitment
The Metroparks are committed to removing barriers, creating and 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 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 accessible and can provide an enjoyable experience for visitors of varying abilities, but we have also worked to evaluate our existing facilities and identify areas where improvements could be made. The result of that is our ADA Transition Plan which outlines areas where we will work to continually remove barriers and improve our accessibility.
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 do ask for a two-week lead time prior to your visit for us to best be able to address your request. If your request is received in less than two weeks, 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.
