Until now, the feelings of pure joy associated with climbing a tree were out of reach for anyone with mobility impairments. Those using a wheelchair could never experience the delight of watching the world from their very own treehouse. But all that changed in the Fall of 2008 when Crystal Springs opened the very first universally-accessible treehouse in Massachusetts on its beautiful 45-acre campus. Children of all ages and ability levels now have the opportunity to visit a special place in the woods, far away from the limitations of an earthbound perspective. Whether it is used for class, music therapy, or simple recreation and enjoyment, the magnificent view of its natural surroundings help to make this storybook-like structure a magical destination where everyone can have fun being themselves.
For more information or to visit our treehouse, please contact our Community Outreach Coordinator, Angie Taylor, at 774-855-3301 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
