S.F. park to upgrade disabled access
March 18, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Bay Area’s Golden Gate National Recreational Area will be soon providing upgraded access for the thousands of visitors each year who have vision and mobility disabilities.

The group Disability Rights Advocates announced in a statement Monday that it had reached a landmark settlement with the federal National Park Service.

The settlement provides increased wheelchair access at popular trails and beaches as well as Braille, audio and tactile orientation signs for visitors with visual impairments.

GGNRA has also committed to spending $3 million on additional accessibility projects.

The Golden Gate National Recreational Area is set on more than 75,000 acres and contains national landmarks including Alcatraz, the Marin Headlands and the Presidio.

The park attracts more than 13 million visitors every year.
