Press Room: Playrite surface gives park a boost

Playrite surface gives park a boost

An artificial grass surface by Playrite has helped to transform a Stockport park into an area the community can be proud of.

Fitness equipment with Nearlygrass

The local council recognised there was a need for improvement to Crescent Park, to make it a more attractive recreational area for local people to spend time with family and friends.

A decision was made to install activity equipment which consisted of fitness machines within the children’s play areas and to resurface the footprint with a synthetic surface.

Working on behalf of Groundworks, Premier Recreation managed the project from beginning through to installation. As the area is being used for children’s activities, Premier Recreation decided that Playrite’s Nearlygrass 30 Premium Beige was the perfect surface to install due to its natural grass look, along with the added safety measure of installing a shockpad which is tested and certified for critical fall height protection.

ProPlay 35 is a 35mm thick shockpad supplied in tile form providing critical fall protection of up to 1.70 metres. This product was used as an underlay to the Nearlygrass to ensure that any falls were cushioned and reduce the risk of injury.
