Accessible facilities

Prince Edward Island National Park

Parks Canada is committed to maximizing accessibility so that all visitors have the opportunity to enjoy Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. Prince Edward Island National Park provides public buildings, campgrounds, washrooms, and trails that are open and accessible to all members of the public. 

Beaches 

Accessible facilities in PEI National Park.

Beach accessibility

Cavendish Beach and Brackley Beach offer supervised swimming, accessible beach access, mobility mats, accessible washrooms and designated parking for those with limited mobility. 

Mobility mats are special mat surfaces at the base of the beach entrance ramp, which stretch over the soft sand and give access to the hard-packed wet sand along the water’s edge. This creates an easy path of access for wheels of all kinds.

Beach wheelchairs

Parks Canada offers two different wheelchairs to suit your desired beach activities. Sand wheelchairs have wider, softer tires, which easily navigate the uneven sand surface. Buoyant wheelchairs have a special design to allow the user to get right in the water. 

Campgrounds

Accessible facilities in PEI National Park.

Both Cavendish Campground and Stanhope Campground are accessible, and both locations have accessible washrooms and selected sites designated for those with limited mobility.

Trails

Accessible trails in PEI National Park.

Gulf Shore Way East and Gulf Shore Way West trails are wheelchair accessible with smooth, even surfaces.

Trail-riders

This year we are also excited to offer three different types of trail-rider wheelchairs to help improve accessibility to the trails in the park. PEI National Park is piloting these accessibility tools, so your experience and feedback using these trail-riders could influence accessible options across the country.
