The governor’s initiative to increase access to the state park system includes a park that is fully accessible to the visually impaired.
Recently opened, the park’s main feature is a quarter-mile walking trail with guide wire and sign posts in Braille. Along the guide wire, there are a variety of beads that help hikers know where a sign post is located as well as where rest stops can be found.
A sensory garden has also been opened in the park incorporating unique sounds, scents and textures for all to enjoy.
