New sensory play room opens

Sensory4all 1

A new community multi-sensory room which will benefit children under five and people of all ages with disabilities and additional needs has opened at the Pavilion on the Park.

The project is named Sensory4all and has been funded by Hampshire Country Council.

Designed by Mike Ayres Design, the room will incorporate an omiVista Interactive Floor Projection System, an exciting new technology where the projected images respond to gestures and movement enabling users to easily interact and engage in stimulating experiences. The room will also include soft seating and floor pads, a large bubble tube, mirrors, a sensory projector, colour-changing lighting and a multi-media projection system, much of which can be controlled by the users themselves.

The room can be booked for exclusive use by individuals, families or groups in one hour time slots or just turn up for ‘Pay & Play’ sessions with monthly discounted sessions for Gateway Card holders and their families.



The project would welcome any sensory items in good condition (large or small) or donations to make the Sensory4all project an even more special place to come.
