More all-terrain wheelchairs now available at Tennessee State Parks


Tennessee State Parks have announced the availability of all-terrain wheelchairs at 10 state parks, bringing the total number of state parks with the service to 22. The new wheelchairs are the result of a collaboration between the parks system, the Tennessee Department of Disability and Aging, and Sunrise Medical, who designs and manufactures the wheelchairs. The new chairs are coming to Cedars of Lebanon, Cordell Hull Birthplace, David Crockett, Fall Creek Falls, Fort Pillow, Harrison Bay, Indian Mountain, Meeman-Shelby, Nathan Bedford Forrest and Sgt. Alvin C. York state parks. All-terrain wheelchairs are designed to navigate a wide range of terrains. They give visitors with limited mobility the opportunity to access and enjoy outdoor recreation that might otherwise be inaccessible. The chairs are free for visitor use and available for both children and adults. They can be operated independently and offer the option of allowing caretaker control. More information about accessibility at Tennessee State Parks can be found here.
