Wild with Wheels is delighted to invite you to join us at Kearsney Abbey Gardens on Thursday 14th July at 10am for a FREE accessible nature walk exploring Russell Gardens and Bushy Ruff Country Park.
The distance is about 2 miles and this location is suitable for mobility scooter/ powerchair and competent wheelchair users. There may be some uneven surfaces as some paths are natural and not surfaced.
Therefore the challenge rating of this walk is level 3.
Explanations of our challenge ratings can be found on our website...
Additionally there aren't many sit spots en route so those with mobility restrictions should bring a sitting aid such as an all terrain rollator or seated stick, if able to walk for quite a distance, but with rests in between.
There is also a restaurant and Disabled Parking.
We'll be enjoying a longer stroll than we have in the Coastal Park as we'll be exploring Russell Gardens and Bushy Ruff Country Park, taking time to enjoy the surroundings. It’s more of an opportunity to walk and talk as well as identify some of the local fauna and flora or to take photographs.
We'll be exploring the formal gardens and ponds from the River Stour along an easy access path, arriving at the Lake in the country park. Join us and get close to nature with our experienced Support Walkers.
