Adaptive Recreation provides a comprehensive recreational program for St. Paul residents, of all ages, who have intellectual disabilities.

In addition to specialized activities, Adaptive Recreation provides opportunities for individuals with disabilities to become integrated into programs that are available to the general public. The Adaptive Recreation Program strives to provide its participants with skills needed to successfully participate in community-based recreation programs and encourages them to pursue available opportunities.

Adaptive recreation activities include:
