Parks Canada is committed to maximizing accessibility so that all visitors have the opportunity to enjoy Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. Prince Edward Island National Park provides public buildings, campgrounds, washrooms, and trails that are open and accessible to all members of the public.
The following beaches offer supervised swimming, accessible beach access, accessible washrooms and designated parking for those with limited mobility:
Cavendish Campground Beach
Basic beach wheelchairs are available at all three of these beaches. These chairs feature wider, softer tires that easily navigate the uneven sand surface. Additionally, Stanhope Beach is also equipped with a buoyant beach chair, allowing the user to get right into the water for the full beach-day experience. These chairs are available on a first come first serve basis from June 22 to September 3. Outside of those dates, please contact 902-672-6350.
For more information, please call 902-672-6350.
Mobility mats at Stanhope Beach
This special mat surface begins at the base of the beach entrance ramp and stretches over the uneven, soft sand, giving access to the hard-packed wet sand along the water’s edge. This creates an easy path of access for wheels of all kinds. These mats will be available from June 22 to September 3. Outside of those dates, please contact 902-672-6350.
Both Cavendish Campground and Stanhope Campground are accessible, and both locations have accessible washrooms and selected sites designated for those with limited mobility.
