Inclusive Programs

Community recreation opportunities are available for all persons regardless of abilities or disabilities. We encourage and support the participation of individuals with disabilities in all programs and activities. To facilitate opportunities for people with disabilities, programs may be modified, when necessary, to provide the most successful opportunities for participation. For more information, please contact your local community center.

Autism Friendly Tampa

Park Experience Stories

As part of Mayor Buckhorn’s initiative, we have partnered with C.A.R.D (Center for Autism and Related Disabilities) at the University of South Florida to provide autism and related disabilities friendly experiences at our sites.

In an effort to offer accessibility to all residents of Tampa, C.A.R.D. will produce Autism Friendly Experience Stories to help parents, teachers and other caregivers prepare guest with autism for their visit to our park or facility. It is suggested that you review the site's Experience Story prior to your visit.
