Max Moore Memorial Treehouse

The Max Moore Memorial Tree House is a universally accessible tree house that will be built along the Saranac River Trail in Plattsburgh. Equipped with a special ramp, the tree house will offer recreation opportunities to the entire community, including those with limited mobility. The universal design concepts that will be utilized for the construction of the tree house will allow access by wheelchairs and strollers, offering a rare opportunity for everyone, including the disabled and young children, to enjoy a real tree house overlooking the scenic Saranac River.
