Variety Alberta worked with the City of Calgary to bring aquatic wheelchairs to Calgary.
Variety Park was one of three parks selected to pilot this project for the remainder of the summer.
We are excited that Calgary is taking strides to be more inclusive and supportive of individuals living with disabilities. Variety Alberta is excited to be a part of this.
