Stepping Up to the Plate
There is a large group of Canadians that modern society tends to overlook. There are many disabled individuals that face barriers and obstacles not encountered by able-bodied Canadians.
Calgary Rotary Challenger Park is a barrier free meeting and recreational facility that is accessible to all people regardless of their age or ability. But it is more than that! It is a model of community inclusiveness where persons with disabilities can play next to and with their able-bodied peers. We welcome individuals and organizations to run their programs at Calgary Rotary Challenger Park.
