The Rochester Parks and Recreation department is giving everyone the chance to enjoy the outdoors. Nine months after approving the purchase of an Action Track Chair, this outdoor-friendly wheelchair is now ready to use.
A Century High School student brought the idea to the board in January so he and others with physical disabilities could roam beyond their normal boundaries. This nearly $12,000 purchase is part of a pilot program for the city.
The chair is available to use at Quarry Hill Park on the weekends for 90 minute segments. Users need to make a reservation at least three days out by booking online. Click here to make a reservation.
