Easy access park area with good paths and lovely tea and cakes from the coffee shop at weekends. Can get muddy at times in places but your outside, it's meant to be like that. Great for dog walkers too.

I think the shortest route would be suitable for a wheelchair but some of the longer routes are definitely impassable.
