State Parks releases interactive online ADA recreation map

WASHINGTON STATE PARKS A new online interactive map will help people with disabilities identify outdoor recreation options.

OLYMPIA — Last week Washington State Parks announced the recent launch of an interactive online recreation map specifically developed for people with disabilities.

“Washington state has long been a leader in providing accessible outdoor recreation,” the agency said. “Washington State Parks is committed to making outdoor recreation accessible to all people — from Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant campsites, to restrooms, trails and docks.”

The new online tool helps people with disabilities find state parks with ADA features and facilities. With more than 90 state parks included in the map, visitors can search for several features and facilities, including trails, campsites, restrooms, docks, showers, cabins and more.

In southwest Pacific County, the map identifies Cape Disappointment State Park as an option with ADA features including campsites, hiking trails, interpretive center, restrooms and yurts. In coming months, and ADA-compliant trail is being added to North Head Lighthouse.

The map will be updated as more ADA facilities and features become available. To view the map, visit www.parks.state.wa.us/ADARecreation.
