Blind-friendly outdoor park opens in South Africa's capital, Cape Town
August 26, 2016
The first blind-friendly park in South Africa has opened in Cape Town. The park has many special features that have been put in place after consultations with mobility specialists.
There are special pathways with different surfaces to provide stimulation, and the walls have learning tools like compasses. There are also special bells attached to the swings to alert blind children.
There is a black fence to separate the play area from a garden where people can sit.
