national abilities centerThe National Ability Center (NAC) is dedicated to providing a large range of recreational and sports activities. It is a Center where people of all ages can to turn to for outdoor fun and activities. The Center is proud to be a resource for active residents and guests —those with disabilities and those without.

The Center is situated on a 26-acre Recreation Center and Ranch at Quinn’s Junction, at the intersection of Highways 40 and 248 just east of Park City. The Ranch offers a universal challenge course, indoor and outdoor riding arenas, and a network of trails.

The National Ability Center offers many different sports and recreational offerings including:

  • Horseback riding
  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Canoeing
  • Fishing
  • Waterskiing programs
  • Other programs include challenge and rope courses, as well outdoor educational outings throughout the summer and fall months.

    The Center’s primary commitment is to provide athletic and recreational programs for those with disabilities — individuals who could be limited in their sports and recreational experiences because of the lack accessible programs, instruction and equipment.

    At the National Ability Center, individuals can participate in a number of activities, utilize adaptive equipment, and learn from specially trained instructors and volunteer assistants.

    The Center emphasizes family and peer involvement, so many activities are integrated with both disabled and non-disabled clients. This encourages social interaction, as well as breaking down barriers. Whether you have a disability or not, there are many ways to become involved with the NAC.

    Consider an evening trail ride on the hills of the Center’s 26-acre ranch, or signing up for a riding lesson. Grab a bike and experience one of the cycling outings. You can even volunteer to help a visually impaired cyclist on a tandem bike. Become a peer partner and volunteer to assist in activities such as swimming or horseback riding.

    You can even give the NAC a call about the availability of lessons. If there is an available opening, the Center is happy to include non-disabled individuals.
