Kristin Aarsvold, Recreation Supervisor

The City of Edina believes that each person has the right to participate in the activities of his or her choice. For residents with disabilities, the City offers many adaptive recreation programs. In addition, the City offers support in general recreation programs through Inclusion, the process of providing help for individuals with disabilities to participate in general park and recreation programs.  For over 25 years, the Adaptive Recreation and Learning Exchange (AR&LE) has been a leader in providing options for people with disabilities to participate in programs and activities that are specifically designed to meet their diverse needs. 


Adaptive Recreation (AR) and the Learning Exchange (LE)

AR&LE is made up of two parts – Adaptive Recreation (AR) and the Learning Exchange (LE). The cities of Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina and Richfield each have programs that are specifically designed for people with disabilities of all ages.  These programs include: cheerleading, fishing, golf, Water Aerobics, softball, bowling, swimming lessons, fitness programs, skiing and snowboarding, basketball, as well as a number of social activities for both youth and adults.  The Learning Exchange involves the school districts of Bloomington, Edina, Eden Prairie and Richfield Community Education. Adults with Disabilities programs are working together to offer customized classes for adults with developmental and/or physical disabilities.
