Adaptive Equipment at Special Events

Parks has recently acquired equipment to support accessibility in Park events and programs. Larger special events in the county utilize adaptive equipment. Equipment includes wheelchairs, ramps, mobility mats, water bowls for service animals, and assisted listening devices.

Parks will include a calming station also known as a sensory tent, cool down spot, or relaxation zone. A calming station is a dedicated tent/10×10 canopy that serves as a relaxing spot and provides various forms of organized sensory input when a participant is over-stimulated or upset.

Additional accessible and adaptive equipment is available to support leisure activities such as fishing, golf, and archery. Please visit our “Adaptive Equipment” page for more details.
