Parks and Recreation Accessibility


Hands in the middle.jpg The City of Appleton Parks and Recreation proudly strives to increase the ability for everyone to experience and participate in all areas and activities. Meeting this goal is an on-going process and we understand that some of our parks, parks facilities, and recreation programs are not fully accessible. Please inform us if you have any special accommodation requests by calling 832-5514.

Accessible Recreation Programs

The benefits of recreation extend far beyond the soccer field or the dance floor. The skills that are learned and practiced during leisure time provide a tremendous foundation for life. For an individual with a disability, recreation activities can improve self-confidence, provide socialization opportunities, and reinforce a sense of teamwork and tolerance. They can establish friendships and gain independence. The benefits are endless!


Reasonable accomodations will be made on an individual basis for recreation programs. If you require special accommodation in order to participate, please inform us when you register.
