First Inclusive Water Park
July 05, 2017
Posted By: Paige Mador
Morgan’s Wonderland, the country’s most accessible theme park, has opened the world’s first inclusive water park. Morgan’s Inspiration Island offers the excitement and fun of a water park to children and adults of all abilities, and offers complimentary waterproof wheelchairs (including air-powered power wheelchairs), warm-water splash pad, beautiful interactive water playgrounds, cabanas for relaxing, and a river boat ride. Spacious accessible changing rooms, reasonable ticket prices, sensory-friendly environments, and handicapped-accessible everything make this water park an incredible experience for everyone – especially those who haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy an amusement park due to physical disabilities, developmental disabilities, ambulation difficulties, or medical conditions. Admission for those with disabilities is free of charge. This park has truly thought of everything!
The park’s creator, Gordon Hartman, is a philanthropist who created the amusement park and water park after being inspired by his daughter Morgan, who has developmental disabilities. In addition to funding the parks, the Gordon Hartman Family Foundation offers grants to organizations that help people with special needs. Let’s hope that others around the country take the lead of Morgan’s Wonderland and make recreational opportunities available for everyone!
