Fun without frontiers

Students from Adeje’s diversity centre visit the new ‘park for all’

Students from the Adeje centre for individuals with functionality diversity paid a visit to the new ‘park for all’, the inclusive playground opened last month in Las Torres. This is now the biggest park of its kind in the borough.

The playground has been furnished with equipment that can be used by every child, regardless of mobility needs or diversity, with no physical barriers to enjoy the park’s installations. All the equipment is at ground level so children in wheelchairs are able to use them too.

Among the new equipment are a basket swing, an active wall, a truck passage, a train, a multi-coloured little house, and a swing adapted for wheelchair users, exclusively for children with mobility challenges. The park is designed to encourage healthy play, safety, and group socialisation as well as sensory stimulation, improve motor skills and sharpen auditory sensitivity for those with hearing difficulties.

Alongside the playground there is a picnic area for families to relax and have a snack, and sit together and enjoy the area as a community space. The tables are close to trees and with a perfect view of the playground which has fences and soft-fall surface material.
