One of them is a beautiful garden, where about three hundred plants grow. Each of them can be touched and smelled and due to a Braille's sing next to it identified properly as well.

One purpose of the park is the accustomization of children with life in the city, with the obstacles that await them each day, which is why most devices gathered here are imitatating the sounds they can meet in everyday life, such as traffic noise, the sound of traffic lights located at pedestrian crossings , the sound conditions in offices, train stations or airports. There are also instruments such as educational sound toys like cymbals on which you can walk, obstacle course, swings and numerous walking paths with benches, flowing water, a gazebo where you can relax in shade and many others.
