Martin Park Nature Center Offers Sensory Events

27 Nov

People who are disabled often have a hard time adjusting to the physical challenges of the world and fully experiencing the environment around them.

Those who are blind are unable to enjoy the different colors of the changing fall leaves, while those who are hard of hearing cannot completely appreciate music and the sounds of nature.

To provide support to people with disabilities, Martin Park Nature Center is offering free sensory events to the public. These events give people the chance to experience the beauty of nature more fully, despite their physical or developmental challenges. The series of events will continue through February and is offered to all ages.

On December 15, a free session will be offered to the hearing-impaired, which will involve activities specifically designed for people with hearing disabilities. January 19 is scheduled for people with cognitive impairment, and February 16 will be an event for those who are sensitive to light, sound, or other environmental factors.

Martin Park Nature Center is one of Oklahoma City’s popular parks that offers many recreational features.  A wildlife sanctuary showcases a number of animal species like squirrels, foxes, reptiles, and deer. You can also find animals around the 144-acre nature park.

Three and a half miles of gentle hiking trails, as well as an education center that features a nature educational library, are additional features that can be enjoyed by families. The nature park also features the first observation bee hive in the city.
Martin Park Nature Center is located at 5000 West Memorial Road in Northwest Oklahoma City. The park is opened from Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
