Visitors to Ferry Meadows will be pleased to hear about new access aids at the Park. The RNIB ‘Maps for All’ (a map designed to be read by sight and touch) have now been installed on site for visitors. The park covers a large area so the maps provide information for the two main areas showing things like cafes and toilet facilities. The maps were also designed and manufactured in a style which was sympathetic to the surroundings and fit in with the feel of the park.
Where are the located?
- Close to the main car park, opposite the toilet block and Discovery Den Education Centre.
- At Lakeside on the edge of the pedestrian area close to Rutland Cycling
If you would like some assistance on site to experience these maps, please contact Susan Evans, Senior Projects and Development Officer, Nene Park Trust (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) on: 01733 234193.
And of course don’t forget the braille and large print handheld guides which were produced in conjunction with the RNIB, which are free to loan through the Visitor Centre Nene Outdoors at Lakeside. These give information about the facilities, the park code and detailed maps which would also show the layout of the buildings and public areas.
