We love it when a plan comes together.
While the village was still in the planning stages, different groups of people were involved in research for its design. Besides people with disabilities, we also involved residents of Redhill, because the goal of the village was to be a space for the residents of Redhill and Lengkok Bahru, and not just a centre of disability-related services.
One outcome of this community-centred approach is the inclusion of outdoor fitness corners, located at the PLAYGROUND block, near the side entrance facing the HDB blocks of Redhill Close. Open daily and free for public use, they are designed to allow people of different abilities and ages to exercise together. (The fitness equipment was made possible by a $250,000 sponsorship by the Standard Chartered Bank)
