The Town of Wasaga Beach and Wasaga Beach Provincial Park rolled out Mobi-Mats at various beachfront locations in June. These mats are designed to enhance mobility for pedestrians, individuals experiencing mobility-related disabilities, and wheelchair and stroller users. These mats are at Beach Areas 1-5. The locations are as follows:
BA 1 – at Spruce St. parking lot,
BA 2 – near the bottom of 3rd St.
BA 3 – running off the comfort station to west of the dog beach
BA 4 – running from the north side of the bike trail near the comfort station and playground
BA 5 – off of the gravel parking lot at the end of Sunnidale Rd.
The mats are owned by the town and managed by the provincial park with help from the town’s Public Works Department. The mats ensure accessibility for all to the beachfront. The mats have been used by the town and the park for several years and were originally an initiative of the Accessibility Advisory Committee. These mats don’t go into the water, but Mobi-Chairs that allow access to the water from the end of the mat will be available – follow on Facebook for more details on availability: TownOfWasagaBeach
