World’s First Water Park for People with Disabilities Aims to be Inclusive


Water parks are not easily accessible for people with special needs and other forms of disabilities. With such limited access, it’s difficult for an entire family to have a day out at a water park if they have family members with disabilities.

Morgan’s Inspiration Island

Introducing Morgan’s Inspiration Island, the first ever water park in the world for people with disabilities. It’s located in San Antonio, Texas and is designed especially for people with disabilities who need not be left behind when everyone else is having fun at water parks in the summer.

The Aim of Morgan’s Inspiration Island

Founder of Morgan’s Inspiration Island—Gordon Hartman—aims to make an inclusive, comfortable, and safe water park so that the whole family can enjoy this type of activity together.  With input from doctors, teachers, special needs therapists, and caregivers, Hartman has made the ideal water park that’s within reach of people with any kind of disability. And he named it after his daughter with special needs, Morgan.

Facilities

Morgan’s Inspiration Island comes equipped with traceable bracelets so that children can be easily tracked by their parents. Families can also rent air-powered, waterproof wheelchairs for free. Special needs children don’t need to pay any entry fee. Wheelchairs can access every part of the water park. What’s more, the temperature of the water changes to accommodate those who are sensitive to cold.

The Button

Morgan’s Inspiration Island is all about making life’s simple pleasures accessible to everyone, especially people with cognitive or physical disabilities.
