recreational experiences to all participants through inclusive programming, accessible facility design and provision of accommodations.
This program is a three-tier initiative designed to identify and meet the recreational needs of underserved populations within the community.

This phase will provide immediate training and support to maximize inclusion opportunities for participants in existing City recreation programs. 

Tier Two: Adaptive Programming and Events
This phase will establish new programs and events specifically designed to meet the unique needs of special population groups within recreation.

This phase will introduce programs through external partnerships, to support young adults with disabilities to transition from recreation youth programs into volunteer positions to promote self-determination and provide valuable work experience.
