One Love: Chennai’s First Inclusive Infinity Park Is Now Open In Santhome

Shortcut

The city’s first sensory park and garden is now open for children. 

What Makes It Awesome

Namma Chennai’s first inclusive park for children is here and was made a reality by the Greater Chennai Corporation and Smart City Limited and the Disability Rights Alliance, Kilikili and CityWorks. 

The park has a herb garden, around which is a modified swing, merry go round, and climbers and is a safe space for kids with all abilities to play and have fun. There’s also a basketball court constructed at a slightly lower level so children in wheelchairs can play. 

There are markers around pathways to help navigate the visually impaired and there are a few quiet spots for kids to hang out. We hear that games like snakes and ladders are available and new games will be added. Yay for inclusivity!
