LOOK OUT FOR THE LOAF
Situated in Shankill in south county Dublin this park is spot on for an accessible family walk. Kiddies loved the enclosed playground and the wide open space. Unfortunately there aren’t any picnic benches but there is a very spacious car park and a bus stop right outside also.
A WHEELY GREAT PROM
Bray Promenade is a fantastic spot to visit for a family day out. With ample parking, a wide accessible path and beautiful views along the coast up to Bray Head, it’s the ideal place to go for a walk. We met a variety of wheel users on our trip and were very impressed with the second accessible path running parallel to the prom and accessible ramps dotted along the course.
So delighted to present our first accessible buggy walk in Donegal. Good friends of ours visited Drumboe Forest recently and kindly shared their snaps with us. Click on this link to find out more about the area.
