Accessibility

Three Rivers Park District is committed to full application of the Americans with Disabilities Act to the services, programs and activities of the Park District. Our staff will work with individuals and groups to make reasonable accommodations to make your recreation and education experience pleasant and successful. Three Rivers will apply the concepts of universal design, wherever feasible, in development and redevelopment of areas and facilities. Three Rivers offers a variety of park facilities in both urban and rural settings with varying degrees of development and accessibility.

Services

Three Rivers strives to provide great opportunities to people of all abilities. We will provide reasonable program modifications and auxiliary aids and services to people with disabilities, unless to do so would cause an undue burden to the District.

Inclusion services are available to those who choose to participate in general recreation and education programs. Advance notice of 14 days is usually sufficient for requests. We will do our best to accommodate requests on shorter notice. Please be prepared to discuss limitations resulting from your disability and potential accommodations.

Please call 763.694.7628 (TTY 763.559.6719) or email access@threeriversparks.org to request specific services such as sign language interpretation, to order publications in Braille, larger print, audio tape and/or computer disk, or for help with other questions or concerns about programs, park facilities or this website.

You may also contact the supervisor at the individual park you wish to visit to inquire about the most accessible areas or facilities, or to inquire about programs and events.
