Hello, Garden of the Gods offers may opportunities for people with disabilities. I would suggest beginning your visit at the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center that is located at the entrance to the Park at 1805 N. 30th St. The North entrance to the visitor center is wheel chair accessible and has parking close to the ramp, the lower level entrance is also accessible and has an elevator to a second floor. When you enter, there are two free exhibit halls and many interesting interactive exhibits. The movie “How Did Those Red Rocks Get There?” is located on the lower level of the visitor center and is accessible by elevator. There is special seating available for the movie, just let the attendant know you when you enter the theater. The move is $6 adults and $4/ children with proceeds benefiting the parks education and conservation efforts. The movie gives you an wonderful overview of the geology of how the red rocks formed as well as beautiful aerial footage of the park. The Café and observation terrace are also wheel chair accessible. Before heading to the park, pick up a map and have one of our helpful volunteers show you the route for Perkins Central Garden Trail, it is paved and wheelchair accessible and you will see many of the major rock formations from this site. You can also drive through the park and pull off to take in the many breathtaking views of the rock formations. I hope you have a wonderful visit!
