Challenge

Ollerton and Boughton are adjoining towns. The two Councils came together during the closure of the Nottinghamshire mines and the town has since lost a lot of its personality. As a result, the Town Council decided it wanted to bring some life back to the community and create a brand new social hub.

The Council approached Jupiter Play because of its unique and extensive product portfolio. They sought an original outdoor play area that would bring the locals together.

Solution

Jupiter Play's sales and design consultant showed the Council its interactive range, but they were hesitant. Although they wanted something new, the products pitched caused concern as the Council was only familiar with traditional play. This new form of outdoor fun was unknown territory.

There is an unlimited amount of media Jupiter Play's team could provide the Council with showcasing this innovative form of play. However, nothing is more selling than to go and use a product in person.

Jupiter Play took the Council to its local interactive Sona 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 the local community.

After the Council visited its local interactive site, it was time to decide which products it wanted incorporated into their design. When the team made the decision to purchase the entire range Jupiter Play asked what the driving force was behind almost doubling its original budget estimate. The unique design, ability to update games, low maintenance, online monitor system and volume and time lock control helped persuade the Council in its decision.

The Council purchased the entire Yalp interactive range. In addition, they purchased some of Jupiter's kinetic powered interactive products. This decision allows children of all abilities to enjoy the outdoor play area.

  • Sutu
  • Memo
  • Sona
  • Fomo
  • Gamenetic
  • Jumpstone

Outcome

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 and for Jupiter because it was creating the UK's most interactive playground.

The site opened in mid-July 2017 and the Council has regularly monitored the products online since then. The community playtime hits above average compared to all products installed worldwide, and this can be monitored on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis.

The locals are loving the new play area and have also shown a new level of respect for the area. In addition, the public has reported less anti-social behaviour since the opening. The Council believes this is due to the time lock shutting the products down at 9pm.
