There are no facilities in this part of the park. The surface is cut grass which can be uneven in places. The picnic area is serviced by four carparks: Swallow, Kestrel, Goshawk and Pelican.

Each of these carparks has two designated disabled bays either side of the entrance to the picnic area.

Swallow has two straight bays with an access area in between that would allow for a side loading van.

The other three have wide angled bays to allow easy access.

Photos of the designated disabled parking at each carpark at Federation Picnic Area can be found by clicking the the relevant link on the left hand side menu.

This was a great park! We went down here in March with a group of 7 people in wheelchairs. On the day we went it was quite cold and a little rainy so we were able to use the fully enclosed shelter. The shelter was a great facility, it was a large open room with lots of information and pictures around. We were told that you could call in advance and ask for the room to be left unlocked. 
The bathroom was wheelchair accessible. The car park was nice and close to facilities. The park had lots of paths, they were a little bumpy which wasn't ideal for pushing wheelchairs. Overall though the park was lovely!
Braeside Park is very good park with wide and flat walking paths that are a good size to walk around with people that use wheelchairs. The ground is gravel so can be boggy in the wet weather but usually isn’t too bad to push on. There are one set of wheelchair accessible toilets in the park. Braeside park has plenty of shelter from the weather that the public can use if it becomes wet or too hot. There is plenty to see; lakes, ducks, etc. Staff believe it is one of the best parks to go to. There is heaps of car parking near different parts of the park.  You can also BYO BBQ on non-fire danger days.
