In this mixed-methods systematic synthesis, the authors review the evidence for park-based physical activity interventions for persons with disabilities. Six quantitative and four qualitative papers (446 participants, aged from seven to ninety-one years), were included for qualitative synthesis. The authors identified "... limited, low level, preliminary evidence for short-term improvements in physical, psychological, and social health outcomes in children and older adults with disabilities as well as improvements in disability-related impairments. When accessible, parks fostered societal inclusion".
