Is it suitable for a pram or wheelchair?
The paths are fully paved with no steps for easy access. Prams are able to navigate to all parts of the park. You will need to bring your own muscle power though! With wheelchairs, although some people do manage to get around the park with the help of friends we don’t recommend it. We are on a hill which can get steep towards the top areas. The paved car park area, picnic grounds, playground and all the facilities are on a similar level to each other and are a lot easier to navigate in a wheelchair.
Do you hire prams or wheelchairs?
Unfortunately we don’t have the facilities on offer. Be sure to bring along your own.
Are there discount prices for Special Needs group bookings?
Yes, we offer discount prices for pre-booked outings from Special Needs organisations or groups. You can find more information here.
Are there any extra costs for parking?
Parking is free for all vehicles including buses.
