Opened on the Playground  Salvo D'Acquisto  in Palidoro with the  Children's Hospital Bambino Ges¨

 

Thanks to the efforts of the associations that have joined the initiative, Children's Hospital Bambino Gesù was able to realize the "Children's Area on the Move" at the headquarters of Palidoro entitled Playground " Salvo D'Acquisto ."

The Playground " Salvo D ' Acquisto " is the first step of a major development project on behalf of children , which affects our territory and is an attempt to provide highly professional and appropriate responses to all the people who daily turn to the Children's Hospital Bambino Gesù

The new playground built for children with disabilities Hospital Bambino Gesù Palidoro is an area of ​​600 square meters, " green ", just a few steps from the sea, with anti-shock rubber floor, swings with safety systems and control of posture, access ramps for wheelchairs. And again, spring games fall protection, sensory panels and animated to stimulate the "know how". The new park, named Salvo D'Acquisto was carried out with the objective to promote, through the game, the integration of all children. Even those with severe disabilities .


The new area dedicated to children was made possible thanks to funds raised by the marathon solidarity " Charity Run - Race for children" , on May 12 last year, as well as private donations . A practical response to the need to break down the psychological barriers on diversity and at the same time the possibility for parents of disabled children , to have " a safe place where children can play with other children ."

In Italy most of the play areas has no ramps or the necessary spaces for wheelchairs , resulting in fact impractical for the little ones with problems of mobility. Hence the idea of creating a space without obstacles , for everyone.
