Although not all of our reserve is accessible via wheel chair given the nature of the attraction, special care has been taken to provide pathways and routes with a firm surface and wheel chair friendly access, these are highlighted on our Park Guide. Every attention has been paid to accessability for all abilities and ages and our wardens and staff are happy to reserve wheel chairs and assist wherever possible
