Accessibility


Chanticleer welcomes visitors of all abilities to experience the garden. We strive to ensure that the garden is accessible. However, due to the gardenís varied topography, portions of the historic landscape may be inaccessible.

Mobility


Chanticleer is wheelchair accessible. A one-mile paved path navigates the gardenís 35-acres with benches strategically situated throughout. Topography through parts of the garden is hilly, which can make pushing a wheelchair challenging. Our Visitor Service staff are available to help you determine the best way to proceed before you begin. Visitor Service staff can be found at the reception desk and roaming in the garden.

You are welcome and encouraged to bring your own personal mobility device for use in the garden. Wheelchairs are not available for rent at the garden and Chanticleer does not have shuttles within the garden.

Parking


Reserved accessible parking is available near the entrance. Guests may drop off passengers near the front desk, using the traffic circle as you enter the parking area.

Restrooms & Drinking Fountains


Accessible restrooms are located near the entrance and in the Asian Woods area, half way around the gardenís one-mile path. Most drinking fountains are wheelchair accessible. See a Visitor Service staff member for assistance to locate these.

Service Animals


Service animals aiding visitors with disabilities are welcome at Chanticleer. Pets are not permitted.

Personal Care Assistants


Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) are provided complimentary admission when accompanying guests with disabilities during their visit.
