The city of Phoenix and its non-profit partners offer year-round inclusive recreation opportunities for area residents with disabilities.  

Telephone Pioneers Park
The Parks and Recreation Department manages Telephone Pioneers of America Park, the first barrier free park in the nation. This facility was built through community donations under the leadership of the volunteer organization, Telephone Pioneers of America.

The park features two beep baseball fields, a therapeutic heated pool, a wheelchair-accessible playground, an 18-station exercise course, racquetball, volleyball, tennis, basketball and shuffleboard. Ramadas, grills and picnic facilities also are available. A state of the art "all children" accessible playground was completed in January 2001.
