FORT WAYNE, IN (April 4, 2019) --Visit Fort Wayne with the help of our community partners is excited to announce the launch of the new Fort Wayne Accessibility landing page.
As our city becomes an increasingly popular destination for adaptive sports events, it is important that visitors of all abilities have a resource to identify accessible experiences in Fort Wayne.
“Visit Fort Wayne developed the Fort Wayne Accessibility web page as a resource for visitors with disabilities so they can experience our city to its fullest,” said Visit Fort Wayne President/CEO Dan O’Connell. “Here visitors will find 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.
The goal of this project is to provide a guide for people of all abilities to experience our city to its fullest. In order to do this, Visit Fort Wayne formed an advisory committee of subject matter 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.
“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.
This page is the first step in a larger effort from Visit Fort Wayne to provide a detailed accessible guide to visitors and residents.
