Las Teresitas moves to 100 per cent accessibility
Santa Cruz is honouring its promise to be a disabled-friendly city.
As part of ongoing projects, the showers at Las Teresitas beach have been adapted to facilitate bathing for people with disabilities.
Each of the showers at the beach accesses are now equipped with extensions to help people in wheelchairs. The new equipment allows water to run at an angle.
Councillor for accessibility, Carlos Correa, said the work had been done in less than a month to meet with the requests of users.
“LasTeresitas continues to move to be a hundred per cent accessible beach; much remains to be done but we intend to do so,” he pledged.
The beach already has amphibious chairs so people with reduced mobility can enjoy a dip in the sea. They are free and manned by Red Cross staff.
