Advice From a Local Expert
Beth Stombaugh, a manual wheelchair user all her life, visited dozens of St. Pete/Clearwater parks in early 2022 to gather firsthand information about their accessibility. A Florida resident (she calls Gulfport home), Beth loves exploring local parks to pursue her hobby of wildlife photography. She also advocates for the rights of people with disabilities as well as other marginalized groups, and sings in St. Pete’s One City Chorus. Before she retired, Beth taught special education in Ohio for 24 years.
