1. park facilities, including but not limited to playgrounds, beaches, and pools, that have features specifically designed to be used by people with disabilities, and the location of such features;

2. (i) park facilities that have been assessed during the immediately preceding calendar year for their compliance with the 2010 standards for accessible design, or where applicable, the uniform federal accessible standards or the 1991 Americans with disabilities act standards for accessible design; (ii) whether such assessment was performed in response to a complaint from a member of the public or in connection with plans to perform construction work; (iii) the findings from such assessment as to what actions need to be undertaken to address accessibility; and (iv) the plans that have been made to address accessibility based on such assessment;

3. work undertaken within the immediately preceding calendar year to bring parks facilities into compliance with such standards; and
