There are two pedestrian crossings just outside of the centre on Bangor Road and Town Ditch Road.


There are some steps from the path on Town Dich Road to the front entrance of the centre.


There is a ramp to the left of the stairs at the corner of Bangor Road.

There are dark grey gates you’ll have to move around at the top and bottom of the ramp.


There are site maps and guides to all the facilities located outside the centre to help you find your way.


The entrance to the centre has two sets of automatic sliding doors which take you into the main foyer.


Around the back of the centre, nearby to the disabled parking spaces you will find the Sensory Garden.


If you’re coming to an event at the centre, you can arrange with the event organiser to allow access through doors to the Arts and Community space just past the Sensory Garden.

These doors are just opposite the small stone amphitheatre.


These doors are manually opened by event staff and are quite heavy.

There is a slight ledge on the door frame so you may feel a light bump as you come in if you’re using a wheelchair.
