In September 2002, the U.S. Access Board issued the final rule for accessibility guidelines for recreation facilities for inclusion in the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines. The new recreation rule covers amusement rides, boating, fishing, golf, miniature golf, sports facilities and swimming pools.
