Accessibility information

On the western side of Aughtie Drive is the Community Playground.

The designated disabled car parking spaces are located adjacent to the toilet block. For people with a disability the best access to the playground is via the asphalt path behind the toilet block next to the lawn bowls club. Opposite the bowling greens is a path that leads to a ramped entrance to the playground.


The ramp leads to a flat section in the centre of the wooden structure allowing children with a disability to be part of the a family or playgroup or parents with a disability to supervise their children. The ramp gives access to a tiered sitting area in the centre of the playground. The path leading directly from the main car park is not accessible.
