Embracing Inclusion at Natchez Trace

Removing Barriers: Adult Changing Table at Natchez Trace

Natches Trace State Park now has even more to offer, with the addition of an adult changing table designed to accommodate personal hygiene needs for park visitors of all ages, sizes, and abilities. Now, more families can fully enjoy and explore this great park — just like Micah’s.

Adult-size tables work for everyone, from infants to aging adults, and the need for them impacts every demographic, including our veterans. Without access to a resource like this to accommodate personal care needs, the stress of a public outing can be overwhelming and prevent some people from venturing out.

We are proud to support projects that help our community access a safe and inclusive space and to continue widening opportunities for all Tennesseans to enjoy our State parks.

Located in the visitor center of Natchez Trace State Park, this new resource was made possible through a grant from the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and in partnership with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation and Tennessee States Parks.
