TVA grant to improve accessibility at Tennessee State Parks
A TVA grant will provide more access to Tennessee State Parks for visitors with disabilities. The $136,000 grant will finance all-terrain wheelchairs for Radnor Lake and Tims Ford State parks, an accessible kayak launch at David Crockett State Park, and transportation costs to help Title 1 school students visit parks as part of the Tennessee State Parks Conservancy’s Kids in Parks Program. The all-terrain wheelchairs at Radnor and Tims Ford will double the number of parks with all-terrain wheelchairs, which also includes Rocky Fork and Henry Horton State Park. The accessible launch at David Crockett will be the third in the system with others at Booker T. Washington and the Meeman-Shelby State Forest Park.
