Park and recreation professionals strive to bring programming and opportunities to everyone in their community — regardless of ability. Nearly nine in 10 U.S. adults want their local park and recreation agencies to provide adaptive and inclusive recreation programming. Adaptive and inclusive programs create spaces where modifications to timing or movement, individualized instruction or necessary equipment ensure all may participate.

Key Findings:

  • Nearly 90 percent of U.S. adults agree it is important that local park and recreation agencies create and provide recreation programming that is adaptive and inclusive so persons of all abilities may participate
  • Two-thirds of U.S. adults agree it is very or extremely important that local park and recreation agencies create and provide recreation programming that is adaptive and inclusive so persons of all abilities may participate
