Parks and Recreation Assessments

MTC helps park and recreation organizations make their programs and facilities accessible for people with disabilities.

While the ADA has always required recreation facilities and programs to be accessible, there were no clear standards of accessibility until 2010 and no enforcement until 2012. Today, there are no exceptions. Park and recreation organizations must have accessible facilities and programs, or a plan to reach ADA compliance.

Contact the MTC experts to help develop a plan for complying with ADA requirements.
