Disability Fitness Pass

The Disability Fitness Pass is for residents who have a permanent disability and want to bring one assistant with them for free to Salt Lake County Parks & Recreation facilities, (including recreation centers, pools, and ice rinks) when accompanied by the pass holder.

Pass Holder Assistant

The assistant is not required to, but may also participate in all activities that the owner of the pass is doing. They must however stay within reasonable proximity to provide any assistance required to the owner of the pass.

Disability Fitness Family Pass

The person with a disability qualifies as the first person on a family pass. The individual with a permanent disability will be identified by the +1 after their name, for example (John Doe +1). They are the only one in the family that can bring an assistant at no cost.  Additional family members may use their passes separately and at any time.
