Adaptive and inclusive recreation programs

Supporting the mental, physical, social, cultural, and emotional growth of people of all abilities.

The City of Philadelphia seeks to provide recreation for those of all abilities. This includes offering swimming options for individuals with physical disabilities. View the list of swimming sites for Philadelphians with physical disabilities on our pool information page.

What we do

Parks & Rec provides adaptive and inclusive programming to residents of all abilities. This includes those with physical and intellectual disabilities. 
Coming Soon!
Parks and Rec is creating a system-wide inclusion plan. This plan will:
  • Take a look at Parks & Rec sites across the city.
  • Guide us as we offer adaptive and inclusive programs in more neighborhoods.

Starting this September, Carousel House programs will take place at new locations.

Parks & Rec staff will inform past participants of the new locations.

Here is a list of Carousel House programs and where they will now take place:


Open House

In late August, Parks & Rec will host an open house at Gustine Recreation Center. This will help introduce the new space to program participants.
