Foster Beach and North Beach
The beach recreation information guide says “all of our beaches are handicapped accessible”. Beachrings2 is also decidedly convenient to those who ride their bicycles to the beach because there were bikes parked upside down in the sand. Baby strollers used the mats too.

Bath house on right parallels the very long Beachrings2 pathway toward the shore. Each of the Model F mats overlap each other to form one continuous path.
Shore line end of Beachrings2 pathway shows how it lays flat onto the sand and won’t curl up because of the underneath rings that dig into the sand and provide stability from shifting and lifting.
From the shore, looking back, you can see bikes and a stroller that were used on the path which now accommodates two pedestrians using it as a sidewalk.
