The Ocean County Department of Parks and Recreation has worked diligently to provide accessibility to our parks. Towards that end, the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders has strongly endorsed our goal, and we have been able to provide a park system that encourages our residents with disabilities to come out and enjoy our beautiful facilities! In Wells Mills County Park,Waretown, the VIP trail can be found for the use of "Visually Impaired Persons".

We have two "beachwheels" available to visitors at our parks. These are comfortable, PVC chairs with wide "balloon" wheels, which enable transportation over sandy surfaces. We will be happy to transport the beachwheels to any park facility in the Ocean County park system with 36-hours notice.

We will accommodate special needs upon request, but please give us at least 36-hours notice in all cases. Most of our program rooms are fully accessible, as are our restroom facilities. Parking areas are also clearly marked at all our parks.

All participants should be aware of their limitations prior to registering for a class which requires physical exertion, such as canoeing, kayaking, hiking, volleyball or similar physical activities.

If you have any questions regarding accessibility in Ocean County Parks and Recreation, please e-mail us or telephone 1-877-OC PARKS, 732 506-9090
