Now that the winter weather is past, Island Beach Access has reinstalled the AccessMats at Clinton Beach Park. These blue, ADA-approved mats allow people who are visually-challenged to see the mats and those who are mobility-challenged to have a safe, firm surface on which to access the beach.
We can all be proud to have a universally accessible public beach ready to welcome everyone to Whidbey. Island Beach Access is grateful for the generous support of the Port of South Whidbey, local nonprofits and private individuals who made this possible.
Whidbey Telecom made an excellent video of the Clinton Beach project, which is available for viewing on the Whidbey TV website, as well as at the IBA website and on our Facebook page. We hope to create additional universally accessible public beaches. If you wish to support this campaign to make our community more welcoming and inclusive, please contact Island Beach Access or follow us on Facebook.
