This report, prepared for the Town of Brookline's Parks and Open Spaces Division, investigates the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and how it pertains to Brookline's park and open spaces. The guidelines described by the ADA were used in conjunction with the Geographical Information System that was implemented to evaluate the position of Brookline with the ADA's guidelines. The information provided by the team will enable Brookline to assess the feasibility of the need to develop a proper maintenance plan for its parks and open spaces to ensure ADA compliancy.
