Tiny Township recently installed a portable recreation path at Jackson Park to provide residents and visitors with greater accessibility to the beach.
Council supported the recommendation of the Township’s Accessibility Advisory Committee to purchase and install 100 feet of the Mobi-Mat RecPaths product at Jackson Park, one of the Township’s five major beach parks.
This is in addition to the Mobi-Mat that was installed at Balm Beach in September of 2015. Mobi-Mats are portable and durable roll-out mats designed to enhance mobility for pedestrians, individuals experiencing mobility related disabilities and wheelchair and stroller users. The mat provides a portable walkway across the sand allowing for easy access to the water.
Township Public Works staff will install the Mobi-Mat each spring, assume maintenance responsibility throughout the summer months and remove and store the mats each fall.
