Water Wheelchair Gives People With Disabilities More Access at Greenwich Point

Last summer, the Town of Greenwich, with help from the Greenwich Lions Club, installed a beach mat at Greenwich Point that allows residents with disabilities and parents with strollers or carts the ability to walk on a sturdy platform all the way down to the waterline.

Now, beachgoers with disabilities can utilize a multi-function beach wheelchair to actually go into the water and enjoy some fun in the sun.

On Monday, the Greenwich Lions Club, First Selectman Fred Camillo, and Greenwich Parks and Recreation Director Joe Siciliano, officially christened the new wheelchair at the Susie Baker Pavilion at Greenwich Point.
