I have trouble walking stairs.Is this handicapped assesable?
Unfortunately as others have said, the USS Batfish is not an easy vessel to make your way through. There are two sets of stairs that you must go up and down in order to exit and enter the submarine.
Additionally, moving through the bulkheads requires a bit of flexibility! It is extremely hard to modify these old World War II submarines in order to make it completely accessible.
The grounds have sidewalks and admission is free for just visiting the park and looking at the memorials. You can also get a great view of the submarine as well.
Hope to see you at the park!
It is pretty tough walking through the sub. It probably is not the best place for you.
The interior museum and the exterior commemorative plaques are accessible to all. The submarine upper deck is also accessible, but the interior us only accessed by narrow and steep ladders/stairs.
You would be able to access the top of the sub, as there is a ramp that is at ground level that takes you to the top. But you do have to go down stairs to get inside the sub, and obviously climb stairs to get back up. Submarines of this vintage weren't made with accessibility in mind that is for sure.
