CLEVELAND — Cleveland beaches are more accessible with all-terrain beach wheelchairs made available for those who need them.

Cleveland Metroparks has the all-terrain beach wheelchairs free for use at Huntington Beach and Edgewater Beach, according to the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

The beach wheelchair is also available at Euclid Beach Park on weekends, the organization said.

The wheelchairs have two large balloon wheels with 360 degree casters.

Beachgoers who would like to use one of the all-terrain wheelchairs can ask the lifeguard on duty.

The wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and users are required to fill out a waiver, according to Cleveland Metroparks.
