The Union County Department of Parks &
Recreation offers recreational programs for people with disabilities
year-round for children, age 5, through adult. Programs include: fishing,
golf, volleyball, swimming, karate, ice skating—along with programs in
ceramics, horticulture, cooking, and yoga for teens.
Other programs during the year have included the annual barn dance, nature
programs at the county’s Trailside Nature & Science Center, and a summer
social event. More than 600 residents from the county and surrounding areas
take advantage of this unique programming, which at times involves
partnering with local community centers, schools, colleges, YMCAs,
businesses, support organizations and volunteer groups. Programs do change,
so please check back frequently or call for more details.
