The foundations of the William Ricketts sanctuary, blending sculptures into the natural environment, create some accessibility challenges as the sanctuary is built on the side of a hill. The sanctuary is not big and can be explored slowly. However, manual wheelchair users are likely to need assistance due to the steepness of some sections of the paths.

William Ricketts Sanctuary was assessed for accessibility in 2012. More detailed information on accessibility and photos can be found by clicking on the links below.
