Background and Discussion:
This is a Countywide study to evaluate Harris County Parks and Trails in terms of how well they comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations on accessibility, and how well playgrounds comply with safety regulations. The study aims to provide guidance on which playground safety and ADA regulations are pertinent to Harris County, how to perform safety and ADA inspections, and which tools or methods are best suited to perform these inspections. The study will evaluate all parks and trails in terms of their ADA compliance and playground safety and will develop an action plan in both areas to bring all parks and trails into compliance with the identified regulations



Expected Impact:
The end benefit of the project will be the creation of a standard for accessibility and playground safety for all Harris County Parks and Trails. This project will have two phases and has a 2-year timeline for completion.
