Wheelchairs and 'Scooters' - Roundhay Park
Much of the park is now accessible via tarmac paths with easy gradients, which have been added to since the restoration of the Park completed in the early 2000's with the aid of the Heritage Grant [HLF].
There are RADAR key-accessible toilets at the visitor centre, at Tropical World and in the Lakeside Café.
To book a scooter simply call the Roundhay Park Visitor Services Team in advance of your visit. 0113 2145715.
Wheelchairs - Tropical World.
Disabled parking is provided alongside Tropical World/Canal Gardens on Princes Avenue (see the parking map) so access is possible along a continuous footpath, through the arch and then into Tropical World. The Cafe is also accessible by ramps on the right as you enter via the archway.
A wheelchair is available for customers use at Tropical World - simply ask at the desk. To check or reserve in advance call 0113 2370754. There is no charge for hire or rental.
Useful distances if arriving at the Park Gates on a normal service bus, ask to get off at Roundhay Park Gates.
