THE WILDS NATURE PRESERVE, IN CUMBERLAND
When visitors board the bus, they soon find themselves wandering the habitat of giraffes, zebra, rhino and a host of other exotic beasts.
This magical, wheelchair-accessible safari takes place not in Kenya, but southeastern Ohio.
At 14000 International Rd. in Cumberland on nearly 10,000 acres once mined for coal, the Wilds educates and captivates.
The Wilds’ accessibility is well thought out without being obtrusive.
The barrier-free visitor center has a gift shop and restaurant with enough room to maneuver a chair.
The center has accessible restrooms.
Also on the park’s grounds is a wetlands trail with a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk.
