Overview

Regulations address accessibility in designed landscapes but do not offer standards of practice when it comes to quality of experience. This session examines recent projects that are contributing to widespread best-practice trends towards design that engages the widest possible audience. Learning Objectives - Learn how an inclusive design approach is different than meeting ADA design standards. - Acquire inclusive design strategies and specifications used on park, conservation land, institutional and recreational projects. - Understand how technical knowledge, program management and community partnerships together create successful inclusive landscapes. - Explore demand for frontline information regarding design and construction of inclusive landscapes and available resources.
