Accessibility and the Outdoors
McMaster University recognizes that unique accessibility and mental health needs shouldn’t pose barriers to benefiting from the outdoors. Together, McMaster and the Hamilton community manage dozens of trails and green spaces that have been made accessible through paved or semi-paved pathways, which include various amenities and the possibility for mental clarity and personal rejuvenation.

For those with varying mobility needs Nature at McMaster offers free loans of one Hippocampe All-Terrain Wheelchair. This wheelchair allows individuals to go on non-paved trails with varying slopes, grades, and surfaces.
To inquire about loans, lease contact Wayne Terryberry at email@example.com
