According to the report, now even more people have access to the 10,000 acre Park. They just announced a new mechanical chair that does not have wheels, it has tracks. The $15,000 track chair gives visitors the opportunity to reach parts of the Park that may have been challenging for folks to travel there via a traditional wheelchair.
The Friends of Jonathan Dickinson raised the money to buy the track chair. According to their website, “A track chair is an all-terrain wheelchair that is able to go from paved surfaces to dirt, mud, and even sand without missing a beat, allowing our disabled visitors to experience the Park as never before. The chair is easily controlled by the user, allowing the freedom to get out on our trails.”
According to the Park’s website, “Located just south of Stuart, this park teems with wildlife in 13 natural communities, including sand pine scrub, pine flatwoods, mangroves, and river swamps. The Loxahatchee River, Florida’s first federally designated Wild and Scenic River, runs through the park. Ranger-guided tours of the 1930s pioneer homestead of Trapper Nelson are available year-round. Visitors can enjoy paved and off-road biking, equestrian, and hiking trails. Boating, canoeing, and kayaking along the river are also great ways to see the park. Anglers can fish along the riverbank or from a boat. The nature and history of the park comes to life through exhibits and displays in the Elsa Kimbell Environmental Education and Research Center. Programs for the kids, or for the whole family, are also offered here. The park also offers two full-facility campgrounds and a youth/group primitive campground.”
