About the Project

Launched in 2006, Access to Recreation (A2R) was a three-year initiative focused on supporting community foundations, parks and recreation providers, advocacy groups, and individuals as they sought to provide greater access to a wide variety of recreational opportunities. Its mission was to “be a catalyst for change, enabling communities to create greater access and inclusiveness in recreation facilities, programs, and services for people of all ages and all abilities.”

This initiative was made possible by a $15 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF).
