Accessibility information

Parking

Near the entrance to the park there is a playground and picnic area. The playground has its own parking area with two designated disabled spaces either side of the main access. One bay is 4.0 meters wide and the other is 3.6 meters wide. They both share the access way for additional space beside the vehicle. These bays would cater for a side ramped van.

The playground is constructed of wood and steel. It has a T-shaped ramp allowing access for children or adults with a disability. The ramp gives access to several games and the maze. There are grab rails along the ramped sections and the distance between the posts on the side of the ramp exceeds a meter.
