A Wraxall zoo has taken steps to be more accessible for visitors.
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, in Clevedon Road, has built a Changing Places toilet and installed accessible play equipment as parts of its Ark For All project.
The zoo has also created an accessible play zone with a wheelchair roundabout and basket swings.
The zoo also unveiled a series of accessible signs, designed in conjunction with the National Autistic Society Out of School Clubs in Bristol around the animal enclosures, including illustrated sentences describing the animals.
Ark For All was opened by European, world and Paralympic champion Andy Lewis.
The project is part of the zoo’s five-year plan to become more accessible.
A spokesman said: “We are excited to be able to provide facilities which will enable more visitors to enjoy a visit.
“It is important to provide activities for everyone.”
