Philosophy of Inclusion
The City and County - Department of Parks and Recreation has adopted the LIFE - Leisure Is For Everyone concept which supports the belief that a community with integrity is one which people with and without disabilities recreate, play and learn together.
LIFE* is a philosophy which advocates equal opportunity for all people to participate in the recreation activities of their choice without respect to their race, sex, religion, national origin or disability. The practical application of this philosophy in service means assuring ACCESS for all people to the same recreation opportunities.
