Five new beach wheelchairs are now available for use to visitors and locals – for a total of ten – to use at any of eight state beaches in Santa Cruz County: Natural Bridges, Seabright, Twin Lakes, New Brighton, Seacliff, Manresa, Sunset, and Palm. Supplied by Deming Designs Inc., the new wheelchairs are a standard fixed-frame, all-terrain, stainless steel model, with removable swing-away armrests. The wheelchairs can get wet but do not float. These wheelchairs improve safe park access, fulfilling a mandate by California State Parks and Friends of State Parks to provide equity and inclusion for all. The wheelchairs were funded by a $13,762 grant from the California Coastal Conservancy.
