Lake Metroparks Adapted Programs

Adapted programs are specifically designed for individuals with special needs. Early registration is encouraged to meet minimum enrollment requirements. Lake Metroparks encourages people with special needs to mainstream into any of our program offerings. People who are deaf or hard of hearing are encouraged to use the Ohio Relay Service at 1-800-750-0750.

Special Olympics sports offered by Lake Metroparks include basketball, track field, volleyball, bocce ball, golf, bowling and a Nordic skiing program. With the continuing support of our community, our Special Olympics programs can improve services, accomplish goals, extend opportunities to eligible individuals and continue to provide leisure opportunities that enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities.

Volunteers are needed to assist people with disabilities so they may participate in programs and events. Volunteers are matched with a participant who needs assistance. All that is required is a small time commitment, patience and lots of enthusiasm. Learn a new skill and make a friend, or simply share a leisure activity.
