This installation for people with reduced mobility is located in the natural pools of the Juan Aparicio seafront promenade
On Wednesday (August 8th) morning, the Councillors for the Environment and Beaches, Francisco Moreno, and for Social Welfare, Tomás Ballester, presented a new project in the natural pools of the Juan Aparicio seafront promenade to improve accessibility at the town’s beaches.
The best proposal was to install a platform to enable people with reduced mobility to go in the water in an area reserved for them to swim so that they can enjoy the beaches in a way that is suitable for their needs. The platform has an accessible route up to it and a Red Cross monitoring point nearby to guarantee the safety of the 22 people who can use it at any one time. There are individual seats and a walkway with a handrail for additional safety.
This new initiative is in addition to other universal access projects on the beaches, such as improved access ways to the sea installed in recent years as well as the adapted swimming service that the Town Hall provides each year through the Red Cross.
