What is there to do?

Did you know that Grommet Island Beach Park is a playground for everyone - and we mean EVERYONE! It's the first oceanfront park in America that is 100% accessible, so no matter what your condition you are very welcome!

Grommet Island Park is 15,000 square foot of beach park which feature wheelchair accessible entrances, as well as a super fun playground that's...yep...all accessible too!

The playground has raised sand tables that are perfect to build those sandcastles on for those who can't get onto the beach floor. There is a fun sensory board for kids who are autistic and visually impaired, and there is even a super fun sway boat.

It's lovely to find a place that realizes that ALL kids want the same chance to play!

Grommet Island Park also has a number of fun sculptural features, such as a surfboard, a wave, and playful dolphins and yes, they are all created to ALL children can pretend to be in the ocean, riding the waves and playing with the dolphins.

There is decking which feature seating and umbrellas which can all be used by anyone in a wheelchair, and also allows anyBODY to play in the sand!

Grommet Island Park is a truly special place, and one that will make all kids have a fun and exciting experience down by the water and the sand. 

So grab those buckets and your spades, and those hats and sunscreen, and have a great family day out in Virginia - no matter what disability you have!
