Nehru Park to be first ever disabled-friendly park in Delhi

D.N.I.S News Network – The New Delhi Municipal Council (N.D.M.C.) has decided to give the capital its first ever disabled-friendly park and has zeroed in on Nehru Park.

An implementation plan is underway with recommendations from an N.G.O. working in the area of barrier-free environment. Samarthya had recently conducted an audit of the 75-acre park based on which it had made recommendations.

Among changes would be the addition of multi-lingual signage along with guiding maps at strategic points, different textured flooring at every turn on a walkway, more resting areas at close proximity, and avoiding colour combinations that are difficult to distinguish for people suffering from low vision.
