Accessibility at Ruthven Park

We make every effort to accommodate the accessibility and the needs of all visitors while at the same time balancing the requirements of our conservation mandate.

Public washrooms, the Coach House,  the Bird Banding Station, Welcome Centre, and paths connecting the buildings are both wheelchair and stroller accessible.

Mansion tours include climbing stairs, standing for several minutes at a time, and short periods of movement. A folding chair for you to use to rest throughout the mansion can be made available to you upon request.

A slide presentation on an iPad of the second level of the mansion as well as our extensive outdoor areas is available to those with mobility disabilities to ensure you do not miss anything!

Designated handicapped parking spaces are provided in our main parking lot.

If you have any special needs or requirements that you wish to discuss with us prior to visiting, please get in touch and we would be happy to discuss how we can accommodate you to the best of our ability.
