Ontario Parks Breaking Down Barriers

While our provincial parks offer breathtaking views and spectacular scenery, the rugged terrain can make it difficult for people with disabilities to have an Ontario Parks experience.

Our Awenda Provincial Park Superintendent, Mike Armstrong, has been a trailblazer in this regard and is working hard to break down barriers.

In addition to ensuring accessible washrooms and shower facilities, he has been instrumental in removing barriers on trails and boardwalks and putting in place a ramp and platform right at the water’s edge allowing people with disabilities to fish.

The park even has an all-terrain wheelchair available to visitors that lets people with injuries or mobility disabilities explore the beach, trails and other parts of the park that would otherwise be inaccessible.

We are always looking at new ways to improve our products and services for all Ontarians.
