Accessibility Review – John Ball Zoo

Accessibility Specialist Jackson Botsford recently partnered with John Ball Zoo for an accessibility review. During his review, Botsford examined the park entrance, restrooms, and routes leading from ticketing areas to the park’s exhibits. Botsford also considered if the elevated boardwalk provided effective access to all visitors.

The Community Engagement & Advocacy team enjoyed working with John Ball Zoo. This partnership represents a shared commitment to accessibility and public education.
