California State Parks ADA Access
California State Parks, California
MIG provided accessibility and universal design consultation to the California State Parks in its efforts to create universal access to state park facilities. Work included facility survey development; policy and practices review; staff training; interest group negotiations; and access improvement strategies. To reach the most people, MIG created a web-based survey to gather needs, experiences and problems regarding use of parks, trails and recreation programs. MIG also helped update the agency’s Accessibility Guidelines, which guide staff in making basic services and experiences accessible to people with disabilities, without compromising the natural qualities of the park setting.
