UBC Farm Maps
Q: Are there wheelchair-accessible washrooms nearby?
A: None of our permanent buildings have wheelchair-accessible washrooms; however, we have a single wheelchair-accessible portable washroom just inside the farm gates/entrance.
Q: Is the ground fairly open and even (any protruding rocks/roots, any potholes, any narrow walkways)?
A: The parking lot in front of the gate is mostly packed gravel and dirt, though some of it is grass. It has a very slight downward slope at parts. The roads to the Saturday Farm market and Farm Centre are packed gravel with no major protrusions, but depending on the time of year and how recently it has been repaired, there may be some potholes. You should be able to navigate around them with care. If you are coming for a farm tour, the terrain is generally bumpy off the road. We have had wheelchairs on tours before, but we generally recommend having someone to push your wheelchair, if possible, and only if you don’t mind a bumpy ride at times. If it has been raining steadily, you may want to be cautious as some fields and paths are very muddy.
