Navigating requirements, standards, and best practices around accessible recreation can be overwhelming. Everyone, regardless of age or ability, benefits from parks and recreation opportunities. For communities to fully benefit from parks and recreation opportunities, your electronic communications, program offerings, and facilities must all be accessible to people with disabilities. The National Center on Accessibility (NCA), a program of the Eppley Institute, has been working with state, local, and federal parks and recreation agencies for over twenty-five years to help improve access to programs, facilities, and services for people with disabilities. We provide staff training, site and program assessments, and consultation services for park agencies nation-wide!
