Thanks to Provincetown's Disability Commission, everyone in Provincetown can enjoy the beaches and fishing that have made us the number one destination on Cape Cod. On May 23, 2013 at 11 am the Disability Commission will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to launch their new program for Beach PathMats and Mobi Chair. This event will be held at the Ryder Street west beach, near the Kite Shop.
PathMat is a wonderful solution to access to the beautiful beaches we are so proud of here in Provincetown. Environmentally speaking, it is super friendly to the earth as well. It is not a permanent installation and it can be moved to any location in less than 10 minutes. PathMats are made from a UV stabilized lastomeric material reducing it's environmental impact. Portability, thickness and durability were the main concerns of the Provincetown Disability Commission to make our beaches accessible to all! This choice of material not only provides simple wheelchair access but also for walkers, canes, strollers and those not stable on their feet. All have an alternative entrance to enjoy our waters.
Mobi Chair is the newest amphibious rolling beach chair that will provide someone with simplemobility issues to those who are 100% wheelchair bound with a seamless transition from the PathMat to the beach and or water! Children as well as adults can utilize this wonderful chair and experience a ride through the sand and over small rocks with ease as the rubber pneumatic tires absorb all the shock! Then, after your time in the sun, it's into the water all in the same Mobi Chair!
We at Gabriel's at the Ashbrooke Inn thank the Provincetown Disability Commission for their efforts! Now, if you are wheelchair bound visiting our Provincetown beaches, your only decision is what number sun screen to wear!
Gabriel's at the Ashbrooke Inn is proud to have two rooms suitable for those with limited mobility issues. The Susan and Laurel suites at Gabriel's offer many alternatives within the room including: large doorways, grab bars, ADA compliant elevated toilets, walk in showers with seats and a washer/dryer are included in the rooms. We are happy to deliver delicious made to order breakfast trays to your room if walking to our Great Room is difficult.
We are also grateful to have one town provided handicap parking space right across from the Inn. We live with disabilities within our small family at Gabriel's every day. We are sensitive to the needs of many grades of disabilities (not just limited to mobility) and we are always happy to help with your comfort in getting around and enjoying Provincetown: from noise levels in restaurants, showing you the right spot to have birds feed out of your hand at Beech Forest, to front seat wheelchair parking during a cabaret show! We are honored to help you figure out your options!
