The City of Mesa is maintaining its promise to serve people of all abilities. The Mesa Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities Department has once again received the Certified Autism Center™ designation from the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). In addition, the City is also joining the Global WeThe15 campaign, which aims to represent and transform the lives of persons with disabilities. Through this campaign, Mesa commits to removing barriers faced by persons with disabilities and promote respect and inclusivity. In 2019 the City of Mesa department became the first parks and recreation organization in the world to obtain the certification, which demonstrates the Mesa Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities Department’s commitment to ensuring guests with autism and sensory sensitivities have the best possible experience at its facilities.
