Kadri Park will Soon Get Space for Differently-Abled
Mangaluru: After getting a musical fountain and other amenities, the city’s largest lung-space – Kadri Park- will soon be a ‘differently abled-friendly’ park.
The exclusive corner, only for differently-abled, has been planned and soon, it will come up at a cost of Rs 40 lakh, according to Mangaluru City South MLA MLA J R Lobo.
Lobo said it will come up in one of the corners of Kadri Park. “The park’s layout will be designed to provide easy access to the blind, hearing-impaired and wheelchair-bound people. Our focus is on differently-abled children as well as adults. The project for which funds are already earmarked, will be assigned to a consultancy, which has designed such differently-abled-friendly parks elsewhere in the country,” Lobo added.
Though the city has lung-space, and Kadri park is one of the largest, it has no dedicated space for the differently-abled. Once it is commissioned, it will be the first-of-its kind park for the differently-abled in the district, said sources.
