About the Project

Pierce County Parks is committed to making park sites, programming, and communications welcoming and accessible to all. In 2017, Parks hired a consulting firm to perform an accessibility audit of park sites. As part of this work, Parks also completed a "Preliminary ADA Transition Plan"*. Since then, Parks has worked steadily to address accessibility deficits during the course of regular park maintenance and new construction. Parks also used the findings of the Preliminary Transition Plan to create a "Final ADA Transition Plan". This plan, completed in May 2022 satisfies the Transition Plan requirement of Title II of the ADA, Section 35.150(d). See the link below for more information.

 

*A transition plan is a phased retrofit schedule for every access deficit identified in the access audits.
