The answer is “it depends”.  We want Bloom to be accessible to everyone, but with our event being on a farm unfortunately there are some cases where guests won’t be able to access our field.  Weather can drastically effect our wheelchair & stroller accessibility. So please check site updates to ensure our field is suitable for your visit. See more details below.
Most strollers are able to get around our grounds comfortable.  People with strollers designed for trails / off-road will have the best experience, although most regular full sizes strollers are ok too.  Here are the exceptions: Umbrella type mini strollers with the thin, small wheels. Parents with multiple strollers will have a difficult time, both hand will be needed to maneuver around the field.
Wheelchairs with wider or pneumatic tires, and an attendant to help get around with a moderate amount of effort. Wheelchair exceptions: Heavier wheelchairs (ie: specialty electric wheelchairs), or those with thin wheels will have a difficult time in our field. Wheelchairs without attendant are not recommended as you will need help in certain areas, especially if you veer off the pathways.
