The Genesee County Parks and Recreation Commission has taken great care to enhance the accessibility of Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad with its dirt roads and uneven boardwalks by offering free of charge on a first–come, first-serve basis, a limited supply of conventional (non-electric) wheelchairs.  If you need a wheelchair, it is recommended that you bring your own— especially on busy weekends.

We have a wheelchair swing with our vintage amusement rides. Huckleberry Railroad will hold up to 12 wheelchairs.  The lift ramp on the train for wheelchairs will hold 600 pounds capacity which includes the weight of the wheelchair and the person.
