Everyone Is Welcome at the World’s First Accessible Water Park.

Opening June 17, Morgan’s Inspiration Island is an “ultra-accessible” water park in San Antonio, texas.

The attraction is the sister park to Morgan’s Wonderland — the first fully-accessible theme park.

“Morgan’s Inspiration Island promises to give individuals with physical or cognitive special needs a place where they can splash and play without barriers.” – Gordon Hartman, Founder of the Gordon Hartman Family Foundation

The park features a river boat adventure ride, an eight-acre catch and release fishing lake and five tropical-themed water play areas.

“Like Morgan’s Wonderland, Morgan’s Inspiration Island is not a special-needs park; it’s a park of inclusion.”

There are three models of waterproof wheelchairs at the park,

Including a waterproof powerchair powered by compressed air.

Those with a disability visiting the park can enter free of charge.

After its June 17 launch, the park will be open every day until mid-August, switching to weekends-only for the remainder of the month through September.
