Beach Wheelchairs: Brewster has three beach wheelchairs, two of which are Mobi-Chairs (which float in the water) and one regular beach wheelchair. One of the Mobi-Chairs is permanently located at Long Pond for the public's use, free of charge. The other two beach wheelchairs are available for loan at the the Council on Aging, 1673 Main Street, 508-896-2737, with pickup during weekday hours, Monday-Friday from 8:30am to 4pm. A donation of $10 is requested. The chairs can be reserved; they are loaned out for one-two days at a time, which can be extended if not otherwise reserved. The weight limit for the beach wheelchairs is 250 pounds. The Mobi-Chair folds up for easy transport; the other is bulkier, does not fold up, and needs a larger vehicle for transport.
