My mobility disadvantaged mother was a little worried when I suggested a stroll in the Lady Norwood Rose Garden and Begonia House so I nipped across the road and checked out availability of toilets, smoothness of paths etc. Check check check. Great.
PLUS - two free mobility devices!
I did laugh. I was going to talk her onto one of them - This is your future! - but when we got over there they were both taken. (Seems you have to ring up and book them.) And a son was trying to suggest to his mother that foot off the accelerator and a tiny bit of steering might help!

Ring - 499 4444.

Address: Tinakori Road, Wellington.
Directions: Enter at Tinakori Road, at the top of Bowen Street. A set of stairs or a wheels friendly incline (steep, this is Wellington.)
Phone: (04) 499 1400
