Atlantic Dunes Park is open to the public at this time. During construction the handicap accessible parking on the east side of A1A is unavailable. Pedestrians can park in the west lot and still access the beach through the park.
Park Hours - 8am to Dusk
Atlantic Dunes Park is located one block north of Linton Blvd. on A1A and is lifeguard supervised by the Ocean Rescue Division. There is a boardwalk and nature trail in addition to metered parking, a pavilion, public restrooms and picnic tables. Lifeguards are on duty from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
This Park suits those who want more of a serene beach experience. The park is nestled in an elevated wooded area on the beach side of A-1-A one block north of Linton Blvd. Handicapped parking is available next to the park. While this park does not have a wooden walkway or observation platform on the beach, the City has a "Surf Chair" located there as well as a hard packed 300-foot nature trial through the dunes.
Two Surf Chairs are available for the physically challenged to enjoy the beach. The chairs allow for mobility on the sand and are available from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm at the following lifeguard towers: South 1, located at A1A and Atlantic Avenue and Atlantic Dunes Park, located on A1A just one block north of Linton Blvd. The use of the surf chair is free of charge but there is a two (2) hour time limitation. Use of the chair is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and be accompanied by a companion who is able to assist the user.
Please Note: To ensure safety, Ocean Rescue Staff are not allowed to assist in the transfer of users from wheelchairs or walkers to the surf chair, nor are they allowed to push the user in the surf chair. Therefore, a companion must accompany the user or else the use of the surf chair will be denied.
