The Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) Department announced the arrival of two new Trackchairs to assist visitors with mobility challenges in exploring the trails and open spaces in Colorado Springs. 

This program, a part of the Therapeutic Recreation and Trails, Open Space and Parks (TOPS) programs, will remove barriers and allow visitors to explore designated trails not suitable for regular wheelchairs. The units feature rear stability wheels, a four-point harness, dual port USB and attendant control for volunteers or Park and Recreation staff to assist with maneuverability. PRCS is in the process of developing free programming for the Trackchairs, which will be available in the spring of 2024.  

“We are pleased that the Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department will be able to provide incredible recreational experiences to those with mobility challenges who otherwise, might not have the opportunity to connect with the amazing trails in our parks and open spaces,” said PRCS Director Britt Haley. “We are grateful for our partners and their funding to make parks more accessible to the entire Colorado Springs community.” 

 The Action Trackchairs were made possible with funding through the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Outdoor Equality Grant and the Colorado Springs Office of Accessibility.
