Milwaukee County's Only Host Site
Wehr is proud to be one of newest members of the Access Ability Wisconsin™ (AAW) network, hosting an outdoor wheelchair (OWC) that will serve Milwaukee and surrounding counties. AAW is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to facilitating & providing the means for individuals with mobility challenges including those living with physical disabilities to access & enjoy the outdoors, promoting equity & healthy living. An outdoor wheelchair with a trailer exceeds $22K, but residents can reserve the chair from a host location with just a $50 refundable deposit and take it to their favorite private or public lands using the provided enclosed AAW trailer. These chairs can go where regular wheelchairs with skinny tires can’t travel. Providing access to these "hiking boots" allows anyone living with a physical disability an opportunity to experience the dignity & freedom to enjoy the great outdoors solo & with family & friends, just like everyone else!
Experience the trails like never before!
Use the chair at Wehr, another Milwaukee County Park, or a location of your choice. Think ahead about your next outdoor adventure and reserve today!
