There are paved paths to all seating areas and we offer golf cart service from the Main Gate to the seating areas. The seating area is on grass and is accessible by wheelchairs.  The entrance and restrooms are located on the east side of the venue (left side as you face the stage), so guests with limited mobility may wish to choose seating on the left side of the venue.
