The park is largely accessible to users of wheelchairs and pushchairs. You are welcome to contact us for further details; we can advise you of the easiest routes and do all we can to help make your visit run smoothly.

All of our buildings are fully accessible, and accessible toilets are located adjacent to the café.

Most of our paths are flat and smooth, and a ramp allows access to the beach. Our children’s play area contains fully accessible equipment.

Wheelchairs are available to borrow. Guide dogs are welcome in our buildings. Some locations, including the toilet located by the café, requires access via a RADAR key, which can be obtained from our park office.
