In 2016 the new Yalp Sona was installed. This interactive play equipment takes playing outside to a whole new level. Discover this new way of playing!

The interactive dance and sound arch

The Sona is a play arch guaranteeing fun. One push of the button allows for choosing a game in which children have to memorize a code or traverse a track as fast as possible. Two children making dance moves with their mother and grandmother or counting in Chinese? It's a common sight at this exciting device for the entire family.

The large orange arch is recognizable from a long way off, making it a real eye-catcher. At the top of the arch, a camera is installed registering exactly what children are doing on the floor. The play floor is freely accessible and multiple children can play and move to the music simultaneously.
