Car parking facilities are found in different areas of the park to enable access to all the different parts of it. For instance there is a car park at the top of the park, making access easy for the Ashton Memorial, the café and the butterfly house. There are adapted toilet facilities placed all around the park. The terrain around the park is mostly tarmac making it easier for wheelchair users. There are double door entry spots to all the indoor facilities, including the butterfly house and the café. For access to the Ashton Memorial there is a wheelchair accessible lift to the right hand side of the memorial, with a "call for attention" button to operate the lift. Assistance dogs are welcome within the park. Unfortunately the park does not offer anything in particular to assist with the hearing impaired. Café staff as well as groundsmen are always around to give a helping hand when needed. No parking bay reserved for wheelchair access however there are amble parking spots with large bays.
