Grass pathways can be slippery during or after wet weather and it is recommended to wear suitable footwear with sturdy grip when walking in the wetter months.
Some woodland paths are steep, but handrails are provided.
Mythical Woods has steps and a steep incline making it unsuitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
