Adaptive Recreation

Adaptive Recreation Events

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. 

This summer we are also working with partners to bring adaptive recreation programs to the Metroparks.

Park Accessibility Information & Amenities

Many facilities within the Metroparks are already accessible and can provide an enjoyable experience for visitors of varying abilities. 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, including accessible golf carts, handcycle, canoe/kayak launches and adaptive paddling equipment.

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.

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.
