The Division of Recreation and Parks (DRP) invites all visitors to participate in and enjoy our many parks, programs, and services. We are dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations to ensure that our visitors with disabilities are included and immersed in our Florida State Parks. In compliance with the intent and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act (link is external) and the Florida Americans with Disabilities Accessibility Implementation Act Sections 553.501-553.514 (link is external), Fla. Stat. (2006), we are committed to providing equal access in a respectful and dignified manner to all visitors.
Visitors are encouraged to visit and enjoy our many accessible camping areas, bathhouses, restrooms, recreation halls, fishing piers, environmental education centers, picnic pavilions, and more. We strive to design and construct accessible buildings and facilities that provide access for all visitors and that comply with applicable laws, regulations, and standards. Our new and renovated/altered buildings and facilities comply with accessible design standards.
Programs, Activities and Policies
We ensure equal access by providing reasonable accommodations and modifying our policies without altering the fundamental nature of our programs and activities. A variety of adapted equipment and accommodations are available, upon request, for visitor use. The Florida Park Service and sanctioned concessionaires follow our Service Animal Policy and Wheelchairs and Other Power Driven Mobility Devices Policy to allow all visitors to enjoy our Florida State Parks. We encourage all to visit our many festivals, special park events, beautiful beaches and rivers, interpretive programs, nature and hiking trails, boat tours, and more.
