Accessible Recreation Program

The objective of this program is to provide enjoyable
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.

Tier One: Inclusion
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. 

Tier Three: Transition Support
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.

Free Boccia Program

At the Adult Activity CenterPeople playing boccia.

Adult Services and PLAY for All are joining forces to bring an all-new, all ages, all abilities, family friendly program to the Adult Activity Center. Boccia is a unique sport that was specifically designed to create competitive equity between players with and without impairments that affect motor skills. Players on opposing teams score points by propelling colored balls closest to a target ball on a long, narrow, indoor playing court. In Boccia, all participants play seated, whether in a wheelchair or not. Balls can be propelled by throwing, kicking, or utilizing a ramp — making the game an extremely adaptable sport for players of all ability levels. 

This program will provide participants with everything needed to start playing Boccia, including rules, drills, strategies, and all equipment (balls, chairs, and ramps). No experience needed. 

Saturdays, 12:00 p.m. -  2:00 p.m.

This program is FREE, no registration is required.
