A young boy is sitting at an accessible picnic table with a view of rugged hills in the distance. The picnic table is located on a paved surface with generous space around, with one end of the table elongated to allow use by a person using a wheelchair.


  • Extended table surface that provides required knee and toe space to allow for a forward approach by someone using a wheelchair
  • Edge of table surface is painted a bright blue colour to help avoid collision (BP)
  • Level, firm and stable ground surface leading to and under the accessible table
