FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — Visit Fort Wayne is working to highlight experiences in the city for visitors of all abilities.
The organization said they developed the Fort Wayne Accessibility web page to act as a resource for visitors with disabilities. They launched the project because the city is becoming an increasingly popular destination for adaptive sports events.
The web page highlights resources ranging from general information about accessible experiences in Fort Wayne to specific accessible features of our city’s popular attractions. The page also includes content such as community resources, news and events relevant to visitors and residents with a disability.
“Ideally, every destination in our community will strive to go beyond basic ADA requirements. Fully embracing and promoting access to the wonderful activities Fort Wayne has to offer ensures inclusion of everyone, everywhere” said Patti Hays, AWS Foundation CEO.
The guide was developed with help from an advisory committee of experts from AWS Foundation, Turnstone, The League, Autism Society of Indiana, Easterseals Arc of Northeast Indiana, City of Fort Wayne, Indiana ABA Institute and Fort Wayne Parks Department.
