During the renovation of Miller Park, Omaha Parks and Recreation Department wanted something new and different to add to their master plan. That something different was Yalp. “Our Department had never heard of YALP, so initially our curiosity attracted us. The park planners were captivated by the uniqueness of their product line and were eager to be the first in Omaha to add one in our park system,” said Brook Bench, Former Parks Director.
Miller Park is located across the street from a school and hosts hundreds of kids each day for summer camps and special programming throughout the year. Omaha Kiwanis Club was looking to partner on a signature project that commemorated their 100th anniversary. Together with Play 4 ALL, the first of its kind in Nebraska, the Yalp Sona Arch and Sutu Wall were installed. These interactive play pieces blend the digital world and the physical components of play together to engage youth of all ages and abilities. The Sona Arch is truly a multigenerational inclusive favorite.
