EVERYONE CAN ENJOY THE SEASHORE
Park visitors who are in wheelchairs can enjoy Canaveral National Seashore along with their family and friends. Visitors are invited to use the park's beach wheelchair to gain access to the beach. Each district of the park has a beach wheelchair available. The chair must be used with assistance, but it allows the visitor with disabilities to go through the sand to the water's edge. In the North District, near New Smyrna Beach the visitor may borrow the chair by inquiring at the Information Center. In the South District, near Titusville ask about the beach wheelchair at the Entrance Station.
ACCESS TO THE BEACHThere is access to the beach via boardwalks located at each district of the Seashore. In the North District (Apollo Beach) near New Smyrna Beach Parking Areas #1A and #5, have accessible boardwalks. In the South District (Playalinda Beach) near Titusville, the Eddy Creek Parking Area and Parking Area #8 have accessible boardwalks. An easy to use beach wheelchair is available free to use.
