Setting a precedent for other states in the northern part of the country, a park designed for differently-abled children has opened in Panchkula’s Town Park.

The Department of Social Justice and Empowerment took the initiative to build the park in an area of six-acre at a total cost 65 lakhs. Reliance Foundation bankrolled the project under its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative.


What’s New About The Park?

The swings installed in the park have been designed especially for differently-abled children. Apart from this, the park also has speech therapists, physiotherapists and vocational trainers, who will assist specially-abled-children. The other recreational facilities include trampolines, basket spinner, roller beds, xylophones, wobbly baskets, drums, slides with various tunnels.
“The park has been built keeping in mind safety of specially-abled children,” said Rommel Rajain, the head of Security and Corporate Social Responsibility in Reliance Foundation.

“There is a wheelchair accessible trampoline and a merry-go-round. 5 types of swings with baskets, a wobbly basket, slides and musical instruments also installed,” he added.

Mamta Sharma, the Principal at ASHA School, said that the children are enjoying the park and they would definitely love to come back.

Last year, the Telangana government inaugurated the country’s first-ever National Park for the differently-abled people.
