A Stevenage-based charity that provides specialist care for children with autism has opened a new sensory stimulation garden for their pupils to enjoy.
Tracks Autism, based in Boulton Road, officially opened its Grand Sensory Stimulation Garden on Wednesday.
The top of the range play equipment is set in rubber solution, making it safe for all users and usable in any weather conditions.
Tracks' patron, Lady Marina Hobson, cut the new garden's ribbon - and was joined by Stevenage mayor Simon Speller, borough councillor Margaret Notley and Tracks president Jane Pitman, as well as many other donors.
Lady Hobson was a significant donor to the project, alongside Bar and Beyond, the Dorrington family and several SBC councillors.
