Get Outdoors

To celebrate the great outdoors, a whole host of New York agencies are coming together on June 10 to offer inclusive free activities at State parks and Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) locations.

Think free games and events, and guided fishing, hiking, paddling, camping, birding, archery and more!

Locations will offer a selection of accessible activities, and use of adaptive equipment and demonstrations will be provided at many sites.

Westchester County folks will, unfortunately, have to travel a bit, but what’s better than a summer weekend to get into the car for a short road trip.

DEC Event Locations 

All locations offer wheelchair-accessible features and activities, including restrooms and select recreation opportunities. Please get in touch with the event coordinator directly with accommodation requests and to find out about the adaptive equipment and activities offered at each site.

State Park Event Locations 

Program and scheduling details for each location will soon be available on the NYS Parks website at  Guests are encouraged to bring picnic lunches and their own games or sporting equipment. For details about visitor amenities at each location, visit

The day’s hosts are the DEC and the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (State Parks), in partnership with the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and the NYS Division of Veterans’ Services,
