Philadelphia Parks & Recreation aims to provide full accessibility to all who take part in our programs. We provide a reasonable accommodation in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). People seeking accommodation should talk directly with their rec center leader.
Besides arranging accommodations at rec centers, Parks & Rec has Carousel House. This facility in West Park is dedicated to people with disabilities. Carousel House offers year-round recreational programming. Our offerings support the mental, physical, social, cultural, and emotional growth of people with disabilities.
Carousel House sponsors many activities, including:
- Trips to places of interest.
- Special events.
- Bingo parties.
- Dances with disc jockeys.
- Track meets.
- Holiday celebrations.
- Athletic tournaments.
- The Carousel Ball.
Carousel House has an Advisory Council made up of parents, adult participants, and volunteers. They work with the professional staff to develop activities and assist with special events and fundraising.
