About: 

The Berrytown Recreation Center is located at 1300 Heafer Road, just outside of Anchorage. It is adjacent to the 24-acre Berrytown Park, which has been maintained by Metro Parks since 1970. The center has a gym, fitness center, walking track, kids play room, mulit-purpose room, locker rooms, and showers.

In addition, the Watson Powell community building, the home of a senior nutrition program and other events, is located next door the Berrytown Recreation Center. 

 

Berrytown Recreation Center is home to the Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation Program (AIR).

Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation (AIR) offers a wide range of recreational activities for individuals with intellectual and/or physical disabilities, along with their friends and families.

Programs include wheelchair basketball, aqua exercise, bowling, dances, assisted shopping and more. AIR - formerly Adapted Leisure Activities - is a Louisville Paralympics Sports Program and offers a wide variety of adapted sports for all ages. Year round training and competition is available. For more information regarding these programs contact 456-8148.

AIR staff also works with other programs in the Recreation Division of Metro Parks to ensure people with disabilities can participate in recreation activities, and works with the department's Planning & Design staff to ensure that new capital projects are developed with accessibility in mind. Staff are also all Certified Disability Sports Specialist through Blaze Sports. One on one care (such as personal hygiene) is not provided at programs.  Participants are welcomed to bring an aid or another individual to provide this assistance and this person will not be charged the program fee.
