IACDI is currently advocating for a wheelchair accessible swing to be installed in at least one West Shore Park. More details to be announced in the future.

IACDI believes in the value of partnerships so that we can continue to make accessibility improvements. Together, we can create more inclusive communities to live, work and play!

IACDI supports Mary Lake becoming a municipal park in the Highlands. It is a stunning location with a user friendly trail already in existence with a paved pathway to the house. Access improvements such as disabled parking and 2 possible locations for accessible picnic tables would enhance this park. To learn more about Mary Lake or support the efforts to secure Mary Lake as a municipal park click here www.marylakeconnections.ca
