Who we serve

The Universal Access Program ensures equal access to outdoor recreation in Massachusetts state parks. We're always working to improve and update our sites and buildings for you to visit. We also have specialized recreation equipment for you to use on the trails, the beach, or the ice. And, we offer year-round adaptive recreation programs.

We invite you to use this website as a guide to discover the most accessible parks, forests, beaches, and events.
