Accessible beaches and pools

Find accessible places to swim and sunbathe in Massachusetts state parks, beaches, and pools.

Massachusetts state parks provide access to the water in many ways. Pools have lifts and ramps to get you into the water. Beaches have boardwalks and beach mats to get you out onto the sand. Beach wheelchairs with balloon tires can move you across the sand, and floating beach wheelchairs get you into the water itself. Beach chairs and beach mat are available seasonally, so please be sure to check with the beach or park before you arrive.
