LEWISTON, N.Y. (WIVB) - Artpark is a summer staple in Lewiston, drawing thousands of concert lovers to a picturesque backdrop featuring names like Chicago.
But getting to the point of propping down a chair can be difficult for those who don't get around so easily.
"The handicap accessible area was just jammed pack. At 5:00 there was not one handicap spot," said Katie Grauer, whose roommate has a disability.
Those who need handicap parking are told to use lot "B" where there are several dozen designated spaces.
"The whole lot here should be for handicap people. The people who can get down the stairs and sit on the lawn, all the more power to them, but this area needs to be all for the handicap because if you look around and see how many people are handicapped they aren't being accommodated here," said Cathy Kinyon, whose husband has terminal cancer.
Artpark recently started offering a shuttle for those with disabilities.
"I've never seen a shuttle. The people who are working the parking lot have no idea about a shuttle," said Kinyon.
Artpark President George Osbourne responded, "If they're able to get out of the wheelchair and get on to the cart, we can take the wheelchair along, but it wasn't made to transport wheelchair people."
Osbourne says they're doing the best they can.
"If you look around, this isn't really a handicap friendly area because there are hills and ups and downs and everything," he said.
Osbourne says they have at least 50 percent more handicapped parking spaces than the law requires.
"It could be more accessible if we could find the money to make it that way, but it meets all the requirements of the law."
Osbourne says they had plans to put in a handicapped parking lot, but funding cuts prevented that from happening.
If someone needs to use the shuttle service they must first go the command center to call for one.
