Geraardsbergen. Geraardsbergen has its first two playground equipment for children with disabilities. Netwerkt, part of the Technical Service “Implementation” of the local government that provides social employment, installed a double rocking chair in the play forest at the Mistletoe and in the Abbey Park. The equipment, consisting of a sun lounger and a maxi swing in which children can be secured, allow children with disabilities to fully enjoy the pleasure of a playground.
“Geraardsbergen wants all children and young people to have the space to play, develop and socialize with friends. A nice playground is a good example of this. Although we have several in our city, children with disabilities often couldn’t enjoy them. This is possible with the 2 new playground equipment. We will continue to invest in this in the future as well. Because every child deserves a place to feel at home and to be who they are,” says Alderman of Youth Fernand van Trimpont.
