Greeley has an Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation (AIR) program. AIR provides programs and services to individuals in the community who have varying levels of physical and/or intellectual abilities. AIR empowers all individuals to participate in recreational programming and activities while becoming part of the City of Greeley Recreation family.
According to the US Census Bureau, 7.9% of people living in Greeley have some type of disability. The AIR program is here to offer assistance to support individuals in recreation programs. AIR is here to foster inclusion and adjust programs to fit the needs of people who want to participate. If interested parties need accommodations or additional support any Greeley Recreation activities, please get in touch with AIR at 970-350-9779. In order to ensure the success of the program, we request a two-week notice when people are requesting an accommodation be made to participate in a program.
AIR also provides specialized programs for individuals who have varying levels of physical and/or intellectual abilities. AIR is offering several programs this fall to get more people involved with Greeley Recreation.
