Access to Recreation is a three-year initiative, launched in 2006 that aims to increase access to recreation through the building of accessible recreation venues, including trails, playgrounds, spray parks, and more.
The Access to Recreation initiative began in Michigan and has expanded to four states and includes more than 40 accessible recreation projects, funded in part by the W.K. Kellog Foundation. In Indiana, there are six different projects ranging from accessible water recreation areas to docks, trails and cabins.
Interested in helping out? Monroe County Parks and Recreation are looking for volunteers Sept. 12, 13 & 14th to help install part of Karst Farm Playscape. For more information visit www.weallplay.org.
