The City of Treasure Island has recently installed an ADA beach access mat called a MobiMat, which is the first of its kind in Pinellas County. The mat was installed on Friday, April 27th at Gulf Front Park, the busiest beach access location in Treasure Island.
The MobiMat RecPath is a removable access pathway made out of recycled materials. It extends approximately 400 ft. towards the gulf and is 6.5 ft. wide. It provides improved accessibility for those with mobility impairments and for pedestrians and users of strollers and beach carts.
Gators Café & Saloon, a subsidiary of HCI Group, Inc., donated $21,175 to the City of Treasure Island for the purchase of the mat. The City Commission accepted the donation in October 2017.
The Treasure Island Recreation Department hosts a MobiMat ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, May 17th at 5:30pm in Gulf Front Park, 10400 Gulf Blvd.
