- The grounds are grassed surfaces with embedded gravel along footways. Most grassed areas are kept of manageable length and should not prove difficult for any wheel chair user to negotiate. However, for reasons of safety our approach is all short grass indicates safe areas and all long grass requires caution. Around the edges of all lakes the grass is deliberately left long as it provides an element of cover for the fish and visually indicates the edge of the lake.
The large, free car park is flat and has a mainly gravelled surface.
Toilets are right under the verandah within the lodge building which is located centrally in the Car Park. Within the lodge the floor is of level cement. However, there is a ¾ inch step into the toilet from the verandah path.
The rest room and kitchen are within the fishery lodge building and there is a ¾ inch step into the rest room from the lodge verandah area.
