How Inclusion Works in Redwood City !

The City of Redwood City encourages people with disabilities to be included as an active part of the community. Our inclusion philosophy aims not only to physically include individuals, but also provide adaptations, accommodations, and support necessary to allow for social, mental, physical and emotional inclusion.

Individuals who are interested in enrolling in a recreation program should fill out a Registration Form and A Request for Accommodation Form . These forms can be obtained either online above or at any Redwood City recreation facility. After registration / payment is processed, the request for accommodations will be forwarded to our Recreation Staff. Participants will be in direct contact with Recreation Staff and Instructors to assist with reasonable accommodations.

The ideal amount of time for notification to process and place accommodations is two weeks prior to the start date of the program . The sooner we have the information about a request, the better chance we have to provide a successful inclusion experience.
