Parking places for the disabled are planned, plus renovations to make life easier for pedestrians and people in wheelchairs (access ramp), and a karbay reserved for people with disabilities.
The national park is carrying out improvements to the accessibility of its sites, which meet the needs of the widest range of the public.
In the same way, the Cascade aux Écrevisses site (see data sheet) includes a development which meets the needs of people :
- with reduced mobility (the elderly, people experiencing difficulty in walking, etc.)
- with hearing problems
- with visual problems
- with mental problems.
This site holds the Tourism & Handicap mark.
At Anse-Bertrand (PNG members' area), the National Park, together with the local community, manages an ornithological observatory located in Ravine Sable. The observatory can be reached by a suitable path ; two observation areas have been provided at the right height for those with reduced mobility.
