First water park in the world for people with disabilities
Morgan’s Inspiration Island in San Antonio, Texas in USA is the first water park in the world for people with disabilities.
Gordon Hartman is the man behind the vision and can be called the “Father of Water Park for disabled people.”
Since water parks involve various rides and water related activities, they are not accessible for people with disabilities.
However, Morgan’s Inspiration Island has managed to face the challenge and is an accessible and fun place for disabled people.
While designing the water park, lots of data was collected regarding the needs and limitations of people with disability.
Information was taken from doctors, parents, teachers, special need therapists and caregivers to understand each and every aspect of the water park’s design from the view point of disabled people.
The park has been created to ensure pure and safe fun for people and children with disabilities and also their caregivers.
