Disabled access at our venues
The AccessAble website provides access information about our venues.
Some of our parks have been specifically designed to accommodate wheelchair users.
The following parks offer special routes for disabled people:
- Clement Wilson Park - the short, circular route starts at Shaw’s Bridge car park. It is largely flat and is around 1.8km (1.1 miles) long. It passes through parkland and returns along a section of the Lagan Towpath. The ramps on this route are not standard and some wheelchair users may require assistance.
- Lagan Towpath (Lagan Meadows and Belvoir Park forest- the section of towpath along the Lagan from Stranmillis to Shaw’s Bridge (around 3.5km or 2.2miles long) is wheelchair-friendly. There are disabled fishing bays just off the towpath at Stranmillis. There are also two parking bays at the end of Sharman Road, just off Stranmillis Road.
- Lagan and Lough Cycleway - this coastal path, part of the National Cycle Network, is accessible from Hazelbank Park and runs to Dargan Road. It is approximately 3km long.
- Lagan riverside paths - the riverside terraces along the Lagan from Ormeau Bridge to Donegall Quay (2.7km or 1.6 miles long) and Albertbridge to Queen’s Bridge (0.7km or 0.4 miles) are suitable for people with limited mobility.
