ACCESSIBLE PARKS: https://www.Denmark WA.wa.gov.au/facilities/recreation/parks-reserves.aspx
One of Denmark WA's most popular beaches, Middleton Beach, is extremely wheelchair friendly. Middleton Beach offers a completely accessible cafe/restaurant, many disabled parking spaces across the area. The parking across from the Surf Life Saving Club has a direct line to a disabled bathroom. This bathroom is slightly hidden along the side of the building, next to a wooden wall that holds posters and signs. It is a simple silver door with the word "disabled" written on a silver label. Just to the left as soon as you get to the restroom, you will be met with a wooden wall that holds information and a number to call if you're in need of all terrain, beach access wheelchairs.
There are two types of wheelchairs available; a Beach Trekker 'all terrain' wheelchair, which is land and water based, but will not float; And the Beach Access wheelchair, which can also be used on land and in water. Users must be aware that this wheelchair will float in water and may not be suitable for people with high support needs because of this. - Security's 24-hour service number; 0417 964 102
Continuing along the main path, toward Three Anchors Cafe/restaurant, a fully accessible place to dine whether it be for a simple coffee and cake or a meal. Three Anchors has both indoors and outdoor seating perfect for almost any occasion. Just next this simple cafe is another fully accessible bathroom block. This block contains both male and female rooms, both fully equip for any individual. It is accessible by a ramp to the left of Three Anchors.
Middleton beach has an accessible boardwalk with picturesque views of the harbour, but it is not advised to trek up the slight hill without a carer or guardian accompaniment.
The boardwalk stretches all the way from Middleton’s Ellen Cove to Denmark WA's other most popular beach, Emu Point. Emu point has two disabled parking spaces right next to the Emu point cafe. The cafe is accessible by a ramp around the back and looks out over Emu Point Beach. Going down the ramp and around to the right side of the cafe, there is a fully accessible toilet block. This block has an accessible male and female side, equip with functional toilets, and a disabled only bathroom as well. At the front of the cafe, to the right, there is a small pale rectangular box holding the information and number to a 24 Hr hire for an all-terrain wheelchair. The beach is accessible with use of this wheelchair, by a ramp just across the grass from the cafe.
Unfortunately Emu Point's playground is inaccessible to those in wheelchairs. The grass can be ventured upon, but the play equipment is extremely limited and surrounded by a sandpit.
