Little Rock Zoo Hosts Disability Awareness Day

The Zoo event in a part of a wider state effort to bring attention to efforts to assist people who need assistance enjoying what Arkansas has to offer.

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- It was a day of fun and information for people with disabilities and their families on Saturday as the Little Rock Zoo hosted Disability Awareness Day.

It's the zoo's first, and Zoo staff teamed up with the Arkansas Governors Commission on People with Disabilities to make it happen.

Families got to enjoy free lunch and even received a discount on admission.

 Organizers say they wanted to bring the disabled community together for a memorable day, and bring information to the public.

"Bring people with disabilities out of their homes.

We want them to get out and enjoy the recreational facilities and amenities that the state has to offer.

We thought that the zoo was the perfect place to roll that out," says Lenard Boyle who helped organize the event.

Information booths were set up throughout the zoo.

Leonard Boyle also mentioned the zoo is working closely with their office to make the zoo more wheelchair friendly.
