The Craig Fahle Show

Universal Parks and Access to Recreation

Wednesday September 12, 2012

Over the past few years, the Community Foundation For Southeast Michigan has worked to fund state-of-the-art parks around southeast Michigan that are specifically tailored to children with disabilities. They funded the construction of a park in southwest Detroit, Wayne and Oxford Township and also built a universally accessible kayak launch in Wyandotte along the Detroit River. Craig speaks with Thomas Woiwode, Director of the GreenWays Initiative at the Community Foundation For Southeast Michigan, and Jennifer Skulski, Director of Special Projects at the National Center on Accessibility at the Indiana University Research Park, about the process of building and the need for universal parks.
