On Wednesday, May 29, Gasparilla Island State Park installed the Mobi-Mat (beach mat) at the Range Light parking area.
“This will increase accessibility for our park visitors,” said Parks Manager III Chad Lach, for Gasparilla Island Administration. “This product has been permitted to remain on the beach year-round. If a storm is passing by it can easily be rolled up and stored until the storm passes.”
The Mobi-Mat range of products includes flexible, rigid or semi-rigid roll-out multi-purpose access mats, plates, flooring and bridges specifically designed for portable walkways, roadways and boat ramps.
And, apparently, beaches.
Lach said as soon as they finished installing the Mobi-Mat at the beach on Thursday, this lady was waiting in the wings and was the mat’s first user.
