Accessibility mats approved for Sandpoint Beach
City council approves $37,500 to buy mats and wheelchairs to improve accessibility at Sandpoint Beach
Windsor city councillors on Monday approved the purchase of mats to improve access to Sandpoint Beach for people in wheelchairs.
- Accessible cabs not reaching disabled people
- Snowy Windsor sidewalks a nightmare for people in wheelchairs
The mats will create a non-slip surface leading from the paved walkway at the south end of the beach to the water's edge. More mats, stretching east to west will then provide access to other areas of the beach.
Council also approved the purchase of two water wheelchairs, which will allow people to go into the water.
The mats will be stored away during winter months and installed in the spring.
