Some areas of the Park can be difficult to access due to uneven terrain. We strongly advise wheelchair and mobility scooter users seek route and ground condition advice from staff at the Information Desk in YSP Centre. We offer free use of mobility scooters and wheelchairs, subject to availability – please call ahead +44 (0)1924 832631 to reserve a scooter or wheelchair for your visit. There is priority parking for Blue Badge holders in the main car park. Toilets are wheelchair accessible and there is a Changing Places toilet situated at YSP Learning.


YSP welcomes families and aims to be as family-friendly as possible. In the open air, children are free to run around, making the most of our 500 acres of historic parkland. Facilities for families include: baby changing at YSP Centre, YSP Learning and the Bothy Gallery; highchairs in the Restaurant and Café; family-friendly food and drink; unlimited tap water; and picnic areas.

Bring your dog

YSP welcomes caring dog owners. Please abide by the Countryside Code and local by-laws: dogs must be kept on leads and under control at all times. Use dog-fouling bins provided. 

There are a few restrictions for visitors with dogs: dogs are not permitted in any buildings, in our shuttle bus, or around Upper Lake or Menagerie Wood due to wildlife and grazing cows. Assistance dogs are permitted throughout the Park.
