In order to make our beaches accessible to all visitors, Delaware State Parks offers beach wheelchairs which are available from 8:00 a.m. until sunset, all year. Wheelchairs are available at no charge, on a first-come, first-served basis; however, 24-hour notice will ensure that the chair is reserved for use.
- One beach wheelchair is available at the locations listed below.
- Wheelchair use is limited to the beach area where the chair is picked up.
- Chairs are kept in a locked area. Visitors requesting to use the chair will receive a combination to open the lock.
- It is the visitor’s responsibility to return the chair to the locked area after use and to secure it.
- A companion will be needed in order to push the chair through the sand, if staff are not available to assist.
Wheelchairs are available at the following beach areas
- for Cape Henlopen Main Beach or Gordons Pond call 302-645-8983
- for Towers Road Parking Lot, South Inlet Day Area, or Fenwick Island Lot call 302-227-2800
Park office hours are:
April 1 through October 31, daily, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
November 1 through March 31, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Lifeguards are available to assist at guarded beaches from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
From Memorial Day through Labor Day, Mobi-Mats are available at the Cape Henlopen Main Beach area. Mobi-Mats enable persons using a standard wheelchair to have access to the beach. During storms, extremely high tides may require that the mats be removed until the tides return to normal levels.
Persons requiring a beach wheelchair for more than one day may be interested in renting one from Grand Central Rental to ensure availability throughout their stay. Call (302)227-7328 regarding rental prices and policies.
Disc Golf Rules
- Disc Golf is played like ball golf, using a flying disc. One stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown, and when a penalty is incurred. The winner is the golfer with the lowest score.
- Tee throws must be completed within the designated tee areas. Beginners should always use “short” tees, when provided. After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the least amount of strokes on the previous hole is first to tee-off on the next hole.
- Fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the hole on the front edge of the lie where the last throw landed. The other foot may be no closer to the hole than the foot on this lie.
- A run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed more than 10 meters from the hole. Inside 10 meters, a player may not step past the point of his lie until after the disc thrown has landed.
- A disc that comes to rest inside the Disc Pole Hole basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole. A disc that comes to rest on top of the Pole Hole does NOT constitute a successful putt.
- A disc that comes to rest more than 2 meters above the ground is considered unplayable. The disc must be thrown from the ground directly below the disc. 1 throw penalty.
- A throw that lands out-of-bounds must be played from the point where the disc went out-of-bounds. Water, roads, pavilions and walkways are normal disc golf out-of-bounds hazards.
- Never throw until the players ahead of you are out of range, and until the fairway is completely clear of spectators and park guests.
- Enjoy the game of Disc Golf! It’s fun. it’s fast. it’s the sport of the future!
