Access to facilities

We are trying to model access to greenspace using a road network, for postcodes within 300m of access points to the greenspace. Firstly, would Service Area polygons be the most appropriate method or would you recommend Closest Facility? We have tried both methods, while trying to model service area, roads that are within 300m of the access point (visible by sight) are not being included, can you suggest some solutions? While trying to model closest facility, not all postcodes (incidents) are given a route to the nearest facility, even without a cut off of 300m.

Any guidance on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks
