Inclusive Recreation

Under the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it is the intent of the City of Safety Harbor to include people of all abilities in its recreation programs and activities. The City of Safety Harbor will make reasonable accommodations for individuals with a disability so that such individuals may participate in programs, services and activities outlined in the REAL FUN magazine. If you feel you need a particular accommodation to access any service or program, please call 727-725-1562 ext.1516 or send requests to sschafer@cityofsafetvharbor.com. Please send requests at least seven days prior to the first class so that the City will have time to review the request prior to the class start date.

The City of Safety Harbor strives to make its programs, services, and activities accessible and encourage participants to receive the benefits of recreation. Every reasonable attempt will be made to accommodate individuals with disabilities to allow them to have a safe, enjoyable experience. However, please note that the City is unable to make accommodations that would fundamentally alter the nature of the program, services, or activities, that would cause an undue burden on the City, or that would constitute a direct threat to health and safety. 

Please also note that all requests for reasonable accommodations are assessed on a case by case basis. Participants should be able to perform the following essential functions:

1. Follow basic instructions associated with the program or activity.

2. Function in a group structure and participate in group activities.

3. Use restroom facilities independently, or with the assistance of a caregiver to be retained or provided by the participant.
