Accessible South Florida: Barrier Free Family Recreation


Family recreation in South Florida is available to all regardless of ability.  Beaches across the area have beach wheelchairs, pools have chair lifts and playgrounds now are being built with ramps so that the entire family can participate in play!  South Florida Finds wanted to make a list of some wonderful places to go with the whole family so that no one feels left out. We realize that sometimes a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle or child with different abilities may feel challenged to locate places to go with friends and family.
