The third inclusive play space was inaugurated by Chamrajpet MLA HemchandraSagar on 13th Jan, 2010. The Municipal Commissioner, Mr. Bharat LalMeena, who was also present, instructed his officers from the Horticulture Department to make inclusiveness and accessibility a feature of all parks.

Developed with inputs from Kilikili, the M N Krishna Rao park has a wheelchair accessible play station with many fun elements such as sound rods, textured tiles, a bell, a steering wheel, knots and crosses and an abacus. There are also safe swings, a tyre tunnel, wheelchair merry-go-rounds, tyre swings, a Wheel-through arcade with pipes of different textures and width - all aimed at providing multi sensorial stimulation to all children. Kilikili conducts regular activities aimed at inclusion and integration with children of all abilities.

Gayatri Devi park, Rajajinagar

Following the success of Coles Park, two more projects were sanctioned in South and West Zone to be made disabled-friendly. Kilikili was invited to provide design inputs to the contractors associated with this project for the Gayatri Devi Park. The accessible play space was inaugurated by Mr Suresh Kumar, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and Urban Development, Government of Karnataka, on 26 August 2009, who remarked,“As part of the government, we are called upon to undertake many kinds of development work. But that which has given me great happiness and satisfaction is what I saw today- the development of the second inclusive public play space in Bengaluru, made for special children by the BBMP,”

A unique play structure that is completely wheelchair accessible with a ramp, a merry-go-round and a slide has been constructed, along with other inclusive equipment such as wheelchair sand tables, safe swings, a sensory integration track, a tyre tunnel and an accessible basketball pole. Today, Kilikili conducts regular activities aimed at inclusion and integration with children of all abilities.

Coles Park

Coles Park, Fraser Town, Bangalore –Coles Park, an important public park in East Bangalore was our choice for the first project. In collaboration with the local Municipal Corporation, the play space in Coles Park was made more accessible.The inclusive play space was inaugurated by the Municipal Commissioner, BBMP, Mr K Jairaj on 6th December, 2006. The Commissioner promised to make one park in (the then) two more BBMP zones inclusive.

A ramp at the gate, pathways in the play area, safe swings, a wheelchair accessible sand table, a tyre tunnel were some of the innovations at the park. With damages to the equipment, the programmes at Coles park have been temporarily suspended and we are working with the BBMP to make the play space usable again.
