A playground near my house has been totally upgraded with safer and stronger playground equipment – and the improvements utilize today’s terrific artificial turf. Long wearing artificial turf has replaced much of the gravel and areas around the playground. Long wearing artificial turf is strong and will keep the playground beautiful and practically maintenance free all year long. Artificial turf also can create a softer, more cushioned ground for children to safely play on with less scrapes and bruises. More of today’s city and private playgrounds are using artificial turf for its economic and practical advantages. That’s a winning combination for both young and old alike.
