Il giardino di Betty – playground
Acquario | Porta Siberia | Mercanzia

The outdoor play area for everyone.

An inclusive playground that can be enjoyed by both able-bodied children and others with disabilities, without separations, thanks to easily accessible games.
“Il giardino di Betty” is an important project that was placed in Porto Antico in 2010 and which was later improved with a soft anti-trauma flooring made of recycled materials.

Play ecologically.

The soft playground is composed of old sports shoes which were gathered in different points of Genoa and then transformed thanks to a careful recycling process.

Thanks to this project, shoes which were destined to end up in waste, have been reborn to new life as a granular rubber material, with which it was possible to realize this large 250 square meters area.

This is the ideal place for relax and fun moments for children and families.

The playground area was created by F.I.S.H., the Italian federation for the overcoming of the handicap, and Enel Cuore Onlus, as part of the “Giochiamo tutti!” project.
The ecological flooring is instead an initiative realized in collaboration with Amiu, GOGREEN Association – Onlus and ESO Società Benefit arl.
