Father creates world’s first ultra-accessible theme park

This is a totally amazing story.

Gordon Hartman realised there were no parks where his daughter Morgan, who is disabled, could play. So he decided to build one.

Hartman and his wife Maggie asked other parents where they could take their daughter – somewhere she would feel comfortable, and others would feel comfortable interacting with her.

“We realised such an inclusive place didn’t exist,” says Hartman.

So in 2007 he decided to build it himself. A former property developer, he sold his homebuilding businesses in 2005 to set up The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation, a non-profit organisation that seeks to help people with disabilities. Then he set about creating the “world’s first ultra-accessible theme park”.
