One of Western Australia’s best loved outdoor children’s play facilities has been boosted by a makeover from Perth’s synthetic grass specialists, Green Planet Grass.
Maylands Waterland, located on the popular Maylands Peninsula, overlooking the Swan River just 7km from the Perth CBD has long proved popular with children and families.
Acknowledged as the premier outdoor water playground in WA, the City of Bayswater facility is now bursting with colour thanks to the installation managed from start to finish by Green Planet Grass.
The play equipment on site makes Maylands Waterland a perfect setting for kids but the surrounding unattractive black rubber surface has now been replaced with vibrant green synthetic turf, improving the experience for all of the family this summer and for many more years to come.
As with many school and childcare centres, bringing new life to the existing play areas was a challenge for the City of Bayswater but Green Planet Grass provided solutions that encourage children to play. This was achieved through a range of soft polyethylene, hard wearing and long lasting synthetic grasses suitable for playgrounds and other heavily used areas.
Managing Director of Green Planet Grass, Jeff Dennis, said: “Maylands Waterland is set in beautiful wildflower gardens and has four sparkling pools. It’s been a really popular destination for families for many years so bringing a fresh new feel to the children’s playground was a challenge that we relished and the results are really rewarding, having replacing black rubber flooring with Multiplay Plus synthetic grass.
“The Green Planet Grass range of synthetic grass products transforms a wide range of spaces into highly attractive and versatile multisport and play areas. Synthetic grass is particularly attractive around swings and is a soft yet stable option for ball games and high traffic play areas for children of all ages.
“We have an in-house design and installation team to ensure that every aspect of the job, from initial design, through to supply and installation is carried out with the highest attention to detail. The Multiplay range of lawns include many bright colours. So, in addition to the lush green of natural-looking turf, Multiplay comes in different colours that can be incorporated into all manner of activity zones within one area such as running tracks, hop scotch, four square and other games,” Mr Dennis added.
Line markings can also be integrated to allow for sports such as 5-aside soccer, basketball, cricket and tennis to be included in general play areas. Green Planet Grass also recommends the use of rubber shock pads compliant with Australian safety standards to be installed under the grass to minimise the possibility of injuries.
