The Grove - The Grove is accessible from the parking lot and from Farmers Market. All stores and kiosks within The Grove are accessible. Most of the common area is flat or accessible via ramps. The signature pond and fountain has a path that requires no steps. Every year The Grove has a large Christmas tree that is surrounded by wood chips that prevent wheelchairs from getting too close. The Grove Concierge can assist with wheelchairs. Farmers Market and The Grove are separated by a narrow alleyway that is flat -- no bumps, curbs or ramps. Phone: 323-900-8080. (The Grove Information)

Trolley between The Grove and Farmers Market - The trolley that connects Farmers market with The Grove is wheelchair accessible. There is a ramp that slides out, and then the trolley leans over a little to allow the ramp to touch the ground and provide access to an open area on the lower level. The trolley is subject to seasonal schedules, and it is more for novelty than for transportation. It moves slowly and stops for several minutes at each end, and also in the middle. Nevertheless, it is a popular feature at The Grove and Farmers Market, so the line is occasionally backed up.

Farmers Market - All shops and common areas are accessible, and wheelchairs are available for use. Farmers Market and The Grove are separated by a narrow alleyway that is flat -- no bumps, curbs or ramps. (Farmers Market Information)
