Grommet Island Park, located at the end of the boardwalk near 1st street, is the first handicapped accessible beach park of its kind in the nation. It is mostly for kids but it will allow a wheel chair to have access to the sand.
Ramps and wood polymer decking lead to beach seating areas. The playground includes modified slides, monkey bars, and raised sand tables for building sandcastles. Visitors may also rent beach wheelchairs that can be used on sand.
