Accessibility Self Evaluation Transition Plan (SETP)

Grand Teton National Park » Accessibility Self Evaluation Transition Plan (SETP) » Document List

At Grand Teton National Park and John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, the National Park Service is raising awareness about the importance of identifying barriers to accessibility in the park, and removing them so that people of all abilities can have the opportunity to experience what the parks have to offer.

The Self Evaluation Transition Plan (SETP) lists seven key park experiences that every person, regardless of their ability, should have the opportunity to experience. Park planners identified 17 areas that provide opportunities for the public to access all key park experiences.

The planning team assessed each of the 17 areas and identified obstacles, or barriers, to accessibility that exist in buildings, services, activities, and programs. Barriers may include steep walkways, missing bathroom grab bars, or a lack of audio description in a park film. Once a list of barriers was compiled,the team determined timeframes to remove them.
