ASHWAUBENON (NBC 26) — The Ashwaubenon Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department unveiled a new handicap-accessible beach mat Thursday morning at Ashwaubomay Lake .
The Ashwaubenon Lions Club donated the money for the purchase of a Mobi-Mat, which is made from recycled plastic. It will allow wheelchair access directly to the water as well as access to spots on the beach to spend time with family.
Ashwaubenon Park Board member Deborah Lundberg, who uses a wheelchair, demonstrated how the mat will make beach and water access readily available.
"They have a way to the lake, and they have a way to get out of there," Lundberg said. "They can sit down with wings and watch their family if they don't want to go in the water. It's just kind of perfect."
