: trampolines and carousel, chosen in consultation. This initiative is again borne by the mother of a 5-year-old girl, Louna, with multiple disabilities. Again, it was born thanks to the citizens’ votes under the municipality’s participation budget (204 votes).It is not normal to have to enter this type of budget

for these projects “, Hayat Ezzarhoui pointed out to the elected representatives of Olivetans.

The City of Olivet specifies that “bird’s-nest” swings have been around since the spring in Larry Park and Square de l’Orme-Grenier. It is not specific equipment, but which may be accessible to certain children with disabilities, in a supine position.

The lines move

“The lines are moving,” said Marina Saadani, president of the Des Rêves pour Yanis association: “The city of Orléans is very receptive. What we all would like is a 100% inclusive playground, as in Vannes (52). But it is already big progress, one step after another. Our children will be involved in future projects

“As soon as an area is finished or redone, they should consider doing something appropriate.” The private school Le Renard et la Rose, in Saint-Marceau, offered tocreate an inclusive sensory garden in Léon-Chenault Park

. This project, which cost 80,000 euros, received 353 votes in the last participant budget and will therefore be implemented. Purpose: to stimulate the five senses in children, but also in the elderly in the district. The opening was to take place in September.

In Saint-Jean-de-Braye, a mother responded to a call for projects to install custom games.

So far, the only counters available for wheelchairs are on the Belneuf plain and in the Bel-Air park in Ingré.

The purpose of these steps is to be able toinsert these children with disabilities among their healthy friends

. These games will sometimes be wheelchair accessible, sometimes safer, especially with braces. Sometimes they will also be open to anyone with a notion of prioritizing children with disabilities. These families will thus have less of an impression of “living in a parallel world”, but on the contrary could create a bond.

It will be followed by the Sports Festival, which is open to all children up to 12 years. Two adapted sports will be presented to everyone: Boccia (petanque adapted for all disabilities) and showdown (audio shuffleboard games adapted for people with

low vision).
