New park launches in Hanoi

Details

The Livable Cities team and Think Playgrounds are proud to announce the launch of a new park in Hanoi, Vietnam!

Hanoi lacks parks and public spaces where children can play. Those parks that do exist tend to be dominated by older children—making them less safe for young children, and children with disabilities, to use. This park, built in 2017, transformed an underused space into one where children can run and play. The park is specifically designed for children under the age of five and is accessible to children with disabilities. Upon completion of the playground, 150 children under 5 years old in the neighbourhood play at the playground everyday. In addition, 300 children living with an intellectual disability and autism who are studying in the nearby Morning Star centre play here because the playing equipment is friendly to children with special needs.

Livable Cities is hopeful that this park will be seen as an example for city planners and advocates, and will raise awareness of the need to develop more safe places for young children to play.

Malnutrition, infectious diseases and emerging epidemics have devastating effects on communities where people have little or no access to health services, public spaces or good nutrition.
