Adaptive recreational programs and events

Discover adaptive recreation programs in Massachusetts state parks. These programs offer specialized equipment, modifications, and staff support and instruction.

Out of an abundance of caution due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, adaptive programming has been suspended. We will update the program schedule if there are any new developments.

Looking for some guided accessible recreation in the state parks? Massachusetts is unique in offering adaptive recreation programs year-round and statewide through the Universal Access Program.

Our structured programs feature adaptive equipment, professional staff, and instruction and support. Friends, family members, and companions are always welcome to take part in our programs alongside participants with disabilities.

To learn about upcoming programs and events, please contact us to get on our mailing list.
