Beach wheelchairs, designed to safely provide wheelchair users easier access to the beach, are available for use—free of charge with a Park Pass — within the Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in northern Michigan is offering beach wheelchairs to help visitors of all abilities navigate the sandy shores, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Three beach wheelchairs are available at the dunes, according to a post from the park’s Facebook page. The park, in Leelanau County, is a popular summer tourist destination on Lake Michigan.

Extra hefty wheels on each chair appear to allow for better mobility on sand. Another person is needed to push the chair.

Two wheelchairs — one adult, one child — are available at the Cannery at Glen Haven, and another is at the Maritime Museum, according to the post. Both areas in the park have ramps for beach access.

People interested in using the wheelchairs, which is free of cost, should visit either of those locations.
