Disabled Map

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

The new online tool helps disabled people find state parks with Americans with Disabilities 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 and cabins.

“Washington state has long been a leader in providing accessible outdoor recreation. Washington State Parks is committed to making outdoor recreation accessible to all people,” a state parks news release stated.

Parks included in the map in Mason and Thurston counties are: Millersylvania State Park, Tolmie State Park, Jarrell Cove State Park, Belfair State Park, Twanoh State Park and Potlatch State Park.

The interactive map will be updated as more ADA facilities and features become available. To view the map, visit http://www.parks.state.wa.us/156/ADA-Recreation.
