Traffic Parks are attractions created for the people, especially children, to promote awareness on road safety and traffic, with loads of fun. Typically, Traffic Parks are scaled-down versions of Real Street Networks, with the lane and street-width proportional to the smaller vehicles. Often they include operating traffic signals and during busy times are even staffed with traffic police.
One of the intentions of the traffic park is to improve awareness of traffic safety among the school children. Many traffic parks enable children to gain hands-on experience crossing streets alone and with another pedestrian or on a bicycle to demonstrate the safety challenges in a highly controlled environment devoid of actual motor vehicles.
Traffic Parks are an attraction created especially for the kids, with the primary objective of inculcating traffic rules in them from an early age. Traffic parks are actually a scaled-down version of real-time street networks, with lanes and streets equivalent to the smaller vehicles. Our main intention with Traffic Park project is to improve awareness of traffic safety among school children.

We believe that children are the best learners of any given activity. With Traffic Park project, we intend to promote highest levels of road safety in children, where they will be provided with hands-on experience about crossing streets alone or with a guardian or a bicycle to demonstrate the significant road safety norms in a highly controlled environment devoid of motor vehicles. Films, documentaries and slideshows on road safety measures are projected for the children. A safe passage of play is what we aspire for every Chennai citizen.
Key Benefits of This Project:
Children get the holistic traffic knowledge
Clean Environment with Native Trees and Plants
Ample Play Area for Kids
