LuckyDog Recreation, PlayCraft Playground equipment and FlexGround Playground Safety surfacing make a sweet combination of success on this project at Bud Bailey Apartments, Salt Lake City, Utah.
The project essentially started in Fall of 2012 when Nicole and CJ of LuckyDog Recreation met with Project Manager for Zwick Construction, Mike Wood to visualize what they wanted in this unusually shaped play area. Because the playground is going to be right next to a splash pad planned in the later phase of the project, pour-in-place (PIP) surfacing was the logical solution and preferable to having loose-fill material that would migrate from the play area into the splash pad area where it would clog drains and appear unsightly.
After the surfacing decision was final, Zwick Construction presented several design options to the owner, Salt Lake City Housing Authority, for approval. It didn’t take long to come up with a small structure with two independent items, the Spin-Max-Go-Round and a 4-way Teeter-Totter. The hopscotch, which is made entirely of PIP was added later and really gives the area added play value.
The PIP is a mix of black and terra cotta. The color scheme for the playground is orange, green and tan to match the surrounding buildings. This playground is now open and in use by the children of Bud Bailey Apartments in Salt Lake City Utah. A successful finish, quality people to work with and fun for all.
