Vega State Park Offering Special ATV’s For Handicapped

Oct 26th @ 2:55 pm in News by Scott Staley

Vega State Park on the Grand Mesa has come up with a unique concept.  ATV’s for the handicapped.  Thanks to some grant money and support of local governments the park has been able to purchase specially designed equipment that can be used by disabled visitors.  Officials hope the ATV wheelchair will give them an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors a little more.  These wheelchairs will give visitors a chance to get a little closer to the water so they can go fishing at the reservoir.  Special fishing rods have also been designed with the handicapped in mind and park officials are hoping visitors will not let their disability stop them from coming out and enjoying the great outdoors.
