AWORLD FIRST


Morgan’s Inspiration Island, the world’s fi rst ultra-accessible splash park where guests of all ages and abilities can have fun together, has opened in San Antonio, Texas.


“L


ike Morgan’s Wonderland, Morgan’s Inspiration Island is not a special-needs park; it’s a park of inclusion,” said Gordon Hartman,


founder of The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation, which since 2005 has pursued endeavors benefi tting the special- needs community. “Both were designed with special-needs individuals in mind and built for everyone’s enjoyment. Our goal is to provide a great guest experience in an inclusive, safe, comfortable, not-overly-crowded environment.” Hartman said Morgan’s Inspiration Island will be open


daily throughout the summer until mid-August and then on weekends in August and September. The non-profi t Morgan’s Wonderland admits anyone with a special need free of charge, and the same policy will be in effect at Morgan’s Inspiration Island. “When Morgan’s Wonderland opened in spring 2010,

we really didn’t know what to expect, but the park’s popularity has grown tremendously and encouraged us to add Morgan’s Inspiration Island,” he said. “Now, we’ll have two attractions like none other that everyone – regardless of ability or age – can enjoy. Morgan’s Inspiration Island promises to give individuals with physical or cognitive special needs a place where they can splash and play without barriers.”


Maritime madness Morgan’s Inspiration Island overlooks the theme park’s eight- acre (3.2 hectare) catch-and-release fi shing lake. The focal point is a seven-story lighthouse with a rotating beacon on top that can be easily seen a half-mile (.8 km) away. Six major elements comprise the $17-million, tropically-themed island paradise inspired by Hartman and his wife Maggie’s 23-year-old daughter with special needs, Morgan.
