TOTALLY AWESOME: St. George Opens Senior Wheelchair Park!
St. George, Utah has opened it's FIRST Senior Wheelchair Park this week! The park features ramps and jumps built perfectly for wheelchairs and senior citizens.
Southern Utah is home to very ACTIVE and FUN community with tons of outdoor fun to be had in the area. Southern Utah is ALSO home to MANY senior citizens. So this new park makes great sense for the community!
Eugene Phillips, featured above doing a flip in his wheelchair, said "Man! I love this new park! I feel 75 again doing all these flips in my chair! I haven't had this much fun since Nixon was in office!"
The wheelchair park features many dirt ramps, jumps, and tracks over 3 acres of land. Helmets are NOT required in the park but definitely encouraged.
This park is perfect for the adrenaline junky, as well as those wanting a nice ride in their chair going up and down on the hills. "I've never done anything like this in my chair, but my goal is to do a 900 McTwist by my 90th birthday this spring" says Lucille Cottam of Santa Clara (above).
If you visit the park, don't be surprised when you see lots of tricks happening! "I'm just glad there's finally a park for me and my friends to shred!" Ilene Douglas (below) of Sunriver says. "This place is SICK!"
"I'm no noob! I've survived Prohibition, WW2, Korea, and the liberal hippies in this town. I'll survive this! I'm stoked!" says first-timer, Gerald Alvin of Ivins.
Be careful with your speeds on some places though, Mary Cox (above) found that out the hard way. "I was rippin' and getting some gnarly air on that wooden ramp. I totally spilled it! Thank heavens my husband was there to lift the chair off me." Mary said with a laugh.
This comes weeks after 'House of Jump' featured "Fogey Night" which brought a HUGE crowd!
If your Grandma or Grandpa wants to shred at this new Wheelchair park, they need less awesome pills. This place doesn't exist. This article is SATIRE. But I hope it made you laugh, and have a better day!
