All Arty Parky locations will include an additional tabled area for wheelchair users / people who have difficulty bending down, to enable safe participation on a tarmacked area. Here users can design their own individual patterns that will then be incorporated on to the larger pattern on the lawn. Some pre-gathered material will be available for those who are unable to forage for their own.

All Arty Parky activities are on a drop-in basis and participants can stay as long or as little as they wish.

Head4Arts staff will be available throughout the day to assist as required.
