Mobi Mats Make Lincoln City Beaches Accessible


Lincoln City’s seven miles of coastline are now even more accessible. On Tuesday, May 31 at 10am, the City’s Parks and Recreation, Explore Lincoln City and Public Works departments will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the installation of three portable and removable Mobi-Mats and two beach wheelchairs at SW 51st St. beach. “Accessibility has long been a priority in Lincoln City,” said Jeanne Sprague, Lincoln City Parks and Recreation director. “The addition of the Mobi-Mats and beach friendly wheelchairs extends an invitation to our beaches to everyone.”


The City has purchased 450 feet of the six-and-a-half foot wide, ocean blue mobility mats, which will be installed at three points, including:

  • SW 34th St.

  • D-River Wayside

  • SW 51st St.

“While Mobi-Mats were initially created to provide access for people who use mobility devices such as wheelchairs and walkers, people of all abilities will benefit, making Lincoln City’s beaches more inclusive,” said Kevin Mattias, ADA coordinator for Lincoln City. Installed from Memorial Day through Labor Day, Lincoln City’s Mobi-Mats are ADA compliant, portable, non-slip and roll-up, increasing beach access by creating temporary pathways. They are made from 100 percent recycled polyester and are salt water-resistant.


“We strive to surprise and delight all of our guests,” said Ed Dreistadt, director of Explore Lincoln City. “We’re proud to improve the accessibility of our seven miles of beach to more guests through continued investment in mobility options.” The City of Lincoln City strives to make their facilities easily accessible to all.
