About adaptive recreation and inclusion services

We have a wide range of recreation opportunities available for people of all abilities. Inclusion services are available for people with disabilities wishing to participate in recreation programs offered by the Brooklyn Park Recreation and Parks Department. We also collaborate with other organizations that specialize in adaptive recreation to offer the most program choices.

Inclusion services

We welcome people of all abilities to participate in our programs! If you or your child has a disability, behavior concern, severe allergy, or other condition requiring accommodation, please let us know at the time of registration. Please register early to allow adequate time to process requests.

Registration process

  1. Register for program, indicating a need on the form, online or to the person taking your registration.
  2. If you are registering a new participant requesting inclusion services, we will contact you to discuss strategies for inclusion and to gather participant information. Returning participants will be contacted as needed to determine inclusion services.
