Accessible beaches

Everyone should be able to enjoy Vancouver's beautiful beaches. When it's challenging to wheel onto the sand, you can book a beach wheelchair or wheelchair path kit.

Beach wheelchairs

Over-sized wheels on beach-ready wheelchairs make it easier to travel across the sand.

2 beach wheelchairs are available to use at any of 12 Vancouver beaches. In general, one wheelchair is located at Jericho Beach and another at English Bay Beach.

Wheelchair path kits

A wheelchair path kit is a plastic pathway that you can lay down on the sand to make it easier to roll a wheelchair or other wheeled device.

Reserve a beach wheelchair or path kit

If you would like to use either the beach wheelchairs or the path kits, phone 604-738-8535 to make sure we have the equipment available.

Call several days before you need the equipment to ensure the equipment is ready for you.
