Crescents Park play area, located in Stockport, is a council owned development. In 2017, the local council had raised a concern for the safety of young children playing in this area.
The local council development office specified that the park required more critical fall height protection to ensure children were safe on all of the park’s equipment.
The council had proposed that shockpad tiles, with up to 1.7 metre fall protection, would be used and then overlaid with an artificial grass surface.
After many consultations with the council, Premier Recreation (project coordinators) and Groundworks Manchester (the contractors involved) the decision was made that Playrite 30PB artificial grass would be overlaid over the shockpad tiles.
The 30PB is manufactured using the finest material and traditional techniques that features a natural look and feel.
In December 2017 the project was completed. Crescent Park now has a natural looking surface with CFH protection tiles laid underneath to ensure safety standards are kept high.
The local council are delighted with their new surface and parents can now have the guarantee that their children are safe at all times in the play area.
