SOCHI, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The first playground for disabled children has been opened in Sochi, which prepares to host the 11th Paralympic Games.
The opening ceremony has been attended by President of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach.
The play ground was built at the expense of Ronald McDonald House Charities. It is located on the area of over 800 square meters and is equipped with necessary runways for wheelchairs. Most constructions are accessible for disabled children.
President of the Sochi 2014 organising committee Dmitry Chernyshenko said Sochi residents would be proud of the Olympic Games’ heritage. “New standards, including venues for disabled people, have been created in the country,” he said.
