Our Friday Link today will take you to the DCR (Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation) site for Universal Access to State Recreation facilities. And, we wanted to let you know that DCR is holding an Accessible Recreation Fair on May 30, 2015.
More and more citizens and visitors are asking about ways they can enjoy many of the places the Boston area has to offer with friends or family members who have different levels of mobility or other issues that require some special support.
The brochure covers categories of what they call experiences that will be right for a wide range of abilities.
It charts what is available by park within regions.
And, it covers what you can do at each place.
