It’s good to see you again! For all gatherings, we ask that participants wear masks. We understand some of our friends with Ds struggle keeping them on, and just ask that they try their best for as long as they can, and everyone observe social distancing protocol.

Strollin' & Rollin'

One of the most important aspects of our organization is bringing our Ds community together. So in honor of that- we invite parents of new kiddos as well as parents with older kiddos, and our adults with Ds to get out and walk with us every Tuesday morning!
Meet at the Art of Life Healing Garden sign in Woodward Park at 9:00 am every Tuesday before heading out to walk around Woodward Park.
**Folks in attendance can decide the route that morning. Please note, there is a park entrance fee to park inside Woodward Park. Or you can park in the shopping center across Friant and walk in free.  The Art of Life Healing Garden is at the Fort Washington/Friant entrance of Woodward Park.
This is NOT a formally organized event- DSACC staff may not always be in attendance, but it is a great opportunity to get out, move, and meet new friends. If you decide to stroll with us, please observe social distancing and wear a mask whenever possible.


To enhance the quality of life for all people whose lives are touched by Down syndrome.


We envision a community that demonstrates acceptance, inclusion and appreciation for those who have Down syndrome.
