Day parking at the Duxbury Beach Park is best accessed by going through Marshfield and taking Canal Street to Gurnet Road in Duxbury.

Thanks to The Arc of Greater Plymouth, Duxbury Beach is home to a new beach wheelchair that features floats for those who want to enjoy the waves and a five-point safety strap. Anyone wishing to use the chair can request it from a guardhouse attendant at the Powder Point Bridge entrance. This incredibly generous gift will make Duxbury Beach more accessible to South Shore residents and visitors.
Visitors to the beach will also notice the addition of mobility mats at the Town Resident Lot and Duxbury Beach Park. These were installed by DBR with support Emily Zoltowski of the Duxbury Commission on Disabilities. To read more about this project check out our "Project Access for All" handout. The Reservation is excited to continue to find ways to make the beach accessible to visitors and to spread the joy of a beautiful beach day to more members of the community!
