Accessible Site Elements
Most people focus on the picnic table when equipping a wheelchair-accessible recreation site. But there are other site amenities that should be included in the design: a trash receptacle, a charcoal grill and a utility/prep table. Pilot Rock provides all of these site elements. The ULT Series utility/prep tables are popular because of their simple, open design that provides access to everyone on all sides. The all-steel design makes them durable in public installations.
