Yes. It's ableist. The very young, the old, the infirm, and their carers etc. will not find a 15-minute walk all that easyAlso, getting to the zoo via public transport is a massive ballache for families. That walk up the hill is a bollocks and getting about on the luas with pushchairs is no picnic either.
Disabled spots=spots for people with big fancy new cars they don't want scratched,or lazy bastards who can't walk a few more feet.There's a car park at the zoo, I'm sure there must be disabled spots etc there. That whole fuss stemmed from someone reading that letter that right wing crackpot got in the IT and then claiming cars were 'effectively banned' from the park. When the change people are complaining about is removal of parking from the main avenue.
The Dublin Zoo website says 260 spots are available at the lords walk car park, and there's another 120 over at the cricket club = 380. Let's pretend nobody ever wants to park in those car parks unless they're going to the zoo.Couple of small car parks for an insanely popular destination to be fair.
