Ollerton & Boughton – UK’s Most Interactive Playground

Ollerton and Boughton are two joining towns. The two councils came together during the closure of the Nottinghamshire mines. Since the town lost a lot of its personality, the town council decided it wanted to bring some life back to the community and create a brand new social hub. As a result, came the UK’s most interactive playground. Ollerton and Boughton requested an original outdoor play area that would drive the locals together. Our local sales & design consultant showed the council our interactive range, and at first, they were hesitant. Although they wanted something new, the product we pitched caused concern as they were only familiar with traditional playsets. This new form of outdoor fun was unknown territory.

There is an unlimited amount of media our team could provide the council with showcasing this innovative form of play. However, nothing is more selling than using a product in person. Our sales & design consultant took the council to their local Yalp Sona Interactive dance and play arch Arch, and they were instantly sold. Yalp’s product range completely reinvents the meaning of play. The council knew if it was attractive to their team, it was undoubtedly going to appeal to their local community.

"We are so excited to provide such fantastic facilities for the community. The enjoyment on the children's faces says it all. The products are so fun and unique, definitely something for us to be proud of!"

Choosing the right products

After the council visited their local interactive site, it was time to decide which products they wanted to be incorporated into their design. The team decided to purchase the entire range. The unique design, ability to update games, low maintenance, online monitor system, and volume and time lock control helped persuade the council in their decision. The interactives are a revelation for play as they provide everything that has always been missing for park managers. This was exciting for the council, as we were creating the UK’s most interactive playground.

Building the UK’s Most Interactive Playground

The council purchased the entire Yalp Interactive range. This decision allows children of all abilities to enjoy the outdoor play area. Each product is unique in its function, purpose, and games. For instance, the Yalp Sutu Interactive ball wall is an interactive sports wall powered with sixteen panels activated when hit by a ball, stimulating children to be active and outside. The Yalp Memo Interactive play pillars are the most exciting piece of educational and physical play, all in one interactive playset. The Yalp Sona Interactive dance and play arch is an audio-based game arch that encourages children to dance and have fun outdoors. Last but not least, the Yalp Fono is a DJ-table made, especially for the outdoors. And coming soon, the Yalp Toro Interactive sports arena, which is a colorful and multi-functional sports field, where traditional goals have been replaced with interactive panels.

Opening the UK’s Most Interactive Playground

The site opened up to the playground in mid-July 2017. The council has regularly monitored the products online since the opening. The community playtime hits above average compared to all products installed worldwide. We can observe this on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. The locals love the new play area and have also shown a new level of respect for the area. Also, the public has reported less anti-social behavior since the opening. The council believes this is down to the time lock shutting the products down at 9 pm.
