ARC Park on Saunders Avenue in Northside is a great playground for people of all ages. But it’s a special playground because of it’s accessibility. ARC Park is a handicapped-friendly park that has 3 play areas, a glider, and a tree house.

This park was built as a part of the Greater Richmond ARC. But The ARC organization as a whole is an advocate for the disabled. ARC, and its’ nationwide chapters, offer programs, events, fundraising, and resources. They concentrate on the entire lifespan, and the changes and challenges that occur. They help with infants, school-age, and even adults that have disabilities. They can help with education, the struggle a sibling may face, job placement, and so much more. To learn more, or to donate, please visit www.thearc.org or www.richmondarc.org.

The park also has water features, tunnels, picnic tables, a sensory wall, and playhouse. It is free and open to the public every day from dawn to dusk, barring inclement weather. The pavilion is also rentable for events, parties, etc. Note: it is adjacent to the ARCenter that is not open to the public.
