East Lyme Public Trust Foundation makes boardwalk ADA compliant

The East Lyme Parks and Recreation Commission recently installed a beach accessibility surface mat at Niantic Bay Beach to make the shore more accessible. The project, funded partly from a $1,500 Chelsea Groton Bank grant and partly from donations by the East Lyme Public Trust Foundation, purchased an ADA compliant mat to make it easier for people with wheelchairs, walkers, canes, strollers or other mobility issues to visit the beach.

The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation is also purchasing 20 trash cans to place along the beach, boardwalk and at Cini Park as part of its ongoing commitment to improve public experience at the beach. Other projects have included native grass planting and tracking plant and sand movement.
