Grommet beach is a beautiful beach and an excellent place to turn the kids loose safely to play. This is also a beach that has great accessibility for those with mobility needs. The play areas are all designed with kids in mind. Excellent.

We went to Grommet Playground at around 9 am on a weekday and the playground is empty. My kids had so much fun in the playground. I love the fact that it is accessible by wheelchair and caters to people with disabilities.
