An interdisciplinary team, including park and regional staff, identified the key park experiences and evaluated park areas to determine which areas would be evaluated for accessibility needs. The team then developed implementation strategies for improving the accessibility at each location. The plan will guide changes to the way existing services, activities, and programs are provided in multiple locations throughout San Juan Island National Historical Park by defining what barriers limit accessibility and providing recommendations on how they can be modified or removed to increase accessibility for all users.

The San Juan Island National Historical Park would like your input on the draft plan. Your input continues to be important to the planning process and will help us as we work to ensure we are more accessible to all visitors. The National Park Service values your interest in San Juan Island National Historical Park and we look forward to your participation in this planning process.
