Now all Treasure Island beach goers can get their toes in the sand courtesy of a new 400-foot-long path. The wheelchair accessible path comes courtesy of more than $20,000 donation from Gator’s Café and Saloon.

“It’s expensive, but for the community it’s a very good thing to do,” Gator’s manager Tom White told Bay News 9.

The MobiRec Path opens up Treasure Island’s beautiful beaches to so many visitors who deserve a day in the sun.

Should more Tampa Bay beaches make paths like this? Let us know in the comments.
