Handicap Accessible Activities for Seniors

Senior couple

When you are living with mobility requirements, you may feel like there may be extra hurdles to enjoying outdoor adventures. If you know where to look, the Capital Region is full of fun things to do with handicap accessibility in mind. We’ve compiled a list of accessible recreation that’s close to your home at The Glen at Hiland Meadows so you can have fun with the whole family!

Lake George Battleground Campground- Lake George

Just a quarter mile south of the Village of Lake George is the Lake George Battleground Campground. Perfect for those who want to spend some time enjoying the charm of the town, the grounds feature 10 accessible sites with a unisex bathhouse. The grounds host a multitude of great activities, like boating, fishing, hiking and swimming.

West River Road Boat Launch- Moreau

For those looking for an accessible place to boat or fish, West River Boat Launch is for you! Located right off Route 9 and Reynolds Rd., this launch leads to the Hudson River. It’s a great place to launch kayaks and canoes if you’re not yet a boat owner. Or, set up a pole and fish while taking in the beautiful views of the Hudson River if you’re opting to stay on dry land.

Saratoga Spa State Park- Saratoga Springs

Those familiar with the Saratoga Springs area tend to know this spot extremely well, but did you know how accessible it is? There are enough activities to go around for the family with limited mobility. Saratoga Spa State Park boasts handicap accessible bathrooms, zero-entry pools, paved and low-impact hiking paths, and an entire pavilion that can host a picnic for the whole family when you’re done with your physical activities. One thing’s for sure, whatever your level of mobility, this state park has a ton of fun in store for you!

Though our Eddy Senior Living communities are lovely, there’s an adventure waiting for our residents throughout the Capital Region! Our residents don’t let anything hold them back, don’t let limited mobility keep you home!
