Description

The point map displays the locations of accessible recreation sites throughout New York State that are owned, maintained or jointly managed by the Department of Environmental Conservation. Site locations are based on satellite photo, DEC Land boundaries, waterbody location and road locations. GPS locations were recorded for some sites, especially DEC Region 6. Locations of other sites were based on directions and descriptions given by DEC staff. While most points represent a single accessible site, a few represent a destination grouping of nearby and related accessible facilities.

The Department encourages visitors to contact Access Coordinators directly to discuss their individual needs and recreational pursuits with knowledgeable staff. Many of the Department's accessible recreation sites were designed to provide people with choices about the type of recreational experience and level of personal challenge they prefer. Outdoor facilities are susceptible to storm damage, weathering and natural disturbance. While most points represent a single accessible site, a few represent a destination grouping of nearby and related accessible facilities. Based on staff inspections, sites without any features meeting proposed ADAAG for Outdoor Areas or that do not provide meaningful access to recreation were omitted. All attributes were manually entered, based on staff inspections. Sites were inspected by DEC staff, trained in the ADAAG Proposed Guidelines for Outdoor Recreation Areas (United States Access Board, 2007).
