Day on the Lake


The annual Day on the Lake event is perhaps Arizona’s coolest get together for people with disabilities. Yes, its 100+ degrees out, but Bartlett Lake offers a cool escape.

Tempe Lake Marina


If you live in the Phoenix metropolitan area, you likely know how nice it is to visit Tempe Beach Park. But too few know about the marina and the north shore of the lake. It’s beautiful, rarely crowded and it’s really wheelchair accessible.

What Acessing Arizona Is All About

Accessing Arizona is primarily designed for people who are looking for wheelchair accessible events, locations and activities. If you have paralysis (paraplegic or quadriplegic), Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Bifida, or if you are an amputee, Accessing Arizona has information about an active lifestyle.
If you are traveling to Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Sedona or the Grand Canyon, the site offers insight about the accessibility. We cover trails, lakes, state parks, national parks and just about anything claiming to be handicapped accessible. The site also covers sports and recreation in Arizona.
From racing to rugby, from basketball to sled hockey, we cover all the local sports teams. Note: All photographs and essays are copyright Accessing Arizona, unless noted otherwise.
