Today, on Twitter, I found a nice post from Arthur Levine's blog on about.com, found here. He lets the readers know about a unique amusement park that will be opening on April 10th in San Antonio, Texas. Morgan's Wonderland has been developed by a nonprofit organization as "the world's first ultra-accessible family fun park." A closer look at the park's website shows it to have potential to do amazing things.
The website describes the new park to be "an oasis for people with disabilities, their families and caregivers who need facilities specifically designed to assist them in enjoying outdoor activities."
Attractions shown on the park map include playgrounds and swings designed with wheelchairs in mind, a fully-accessible carousel, an ampitheater, a gymnasium and event center, an Off-Road Adventure car ride, and miniature city block representing the "Sensory Village."
One of the coolest things is their eight-acre lake, with a scenic, accessible railroad circling it. Also circling the lake is the scenic "Walk & Roll Path," which comes complete with a number of themed rest stops along the trail. Imagine World Showcase at Epcot, because along the lake, guests can visit the Caribbean, Japan, Italy, Germany, Africa, and Mexico.
I invite you to go take a look around at the website as the park gets ready to welcome guests. It looks like their really doing a great thing, providing people who maybe haven't the opportunity to enjoy theme parks as we do with an amazing park experience.
