The beach change house has four handicap parking spaces with paved pathways to both the upper and lower levels. The upper level contains vending machines and provides a shady place to sit and relax, overlooking the beach. The restrooms have side-transfer toilets, lever-handled faucets and electric hand dryers. Railed steps lead from the upper level to the lower level, where the changerooms are located. Again, there are side-transfer toilets and lever-handled faucets with plenty of maneuvering room.
